    Is there any way that Cingular AT&T can trace my phone? I know 911 triangulates your position if you call from a cell, but can AT&T do the same thing if someone's phone got stolen so they can track/recover it? I already called and had the service cut so whoever stole it can't use it.

    Thanks!

    I know there's an option you can turn on on my phone called "Location On" which allows people, other than 911 operators to triangulate your position. If you had that feature turned on on your phone it might be a place to start.
