    They aren't gonna do a search for your iPhone man, sorry.

    Try the "Find my iPhone, maybe who took it is an idiot and didn't restore.

    1. Yes, Apple gave you the option/opportunity to activate "Find My iPhone"

    2. I'm sure their is a way, but they won't.

    First thing is to tell the police. Afterwards you can tell Apple and the next time that phone is activated with the new owners name and address. They will tell the police.

    The only advice I can come up with is to search Craigslist.

    I read a story once were a guy had his iPhone stolen and within a few hours found it on Craigslist (he recognized it because the person selling didn't remove the case).

    Since he had the original receipt and box with the serial number and phones IMEI number, he notified the policy that he suspected that this was his phone for sale and (I don't remember the entire story) he was able to get his phone back.

    EDIT: Found the story here in Macrumors Forum

    Honestly, you are probably not going to be able to find it if 'Find my iPhone' didn't work. AT&T won't do anything, neither will Apple. They'll be happy to ring you up $400-700 for a replacement iPhone though.

    You're not going to find it so best to move on.
    Apple and AT&T are not in the business of recovering stolen goods.
    With a gsm iPhone all they gotta do is restore it and sell it, use it on any other AT&T prepaid or postpaid plan or unlock it and use it on Tmobile.


    That's false.
    Apple doesn't care if your phone is lost or stolen.
