Hey Steve, welcome to the AndroidForums!

I've removed your other thread you had in the Android Lounge since it was a duplicate and you've got some traction here (we can always move this one later if need be).

Pretty wild stuff going on here .

Have you tried pushing Plan B (via the web-based Play Store) to your stolen phone to see if it will report it's location to you?

I ask this for two reasons:

1. It will tell you where the device is at ( -- good info to have)

2. It will tell you if your device does indeed support the remote installation and running of an app like Plan B (apps can be pushed to your device from the web Play Market and they will install, but Google changed Android in recent versions to not allow such apps to auto-start and therefore are not as useful if it requires someone to manually launch it on your device (I'm guessing the thief will not cooperate here ))

Let me know about the above before I tell you some additional thoughts that I have...
