    Have you tried Find My iPhone from your Mac's iCloud web login? Use it inform you when the phone is switched on\located & to put a message on the phone's screen, which would be more helpful than just sending a message, I would think - you can also lock it &\or remote wipe it ...once wiped you won't find it again though.

    Oooookay!

    So have you set your message preferences to "Start new conversation from:" ...your Apple ID email address rather than your lost & deactivated iPhone number?

    Also: of course, can only send to other iMessage users (ie. won't deliver SMS)

    For example, here is what happens when I try to send to my other number which is not an iPhone.
