I'm trying it now, GPS is off, and it won't locate the device. After several minutes of searching, it finally says it found my device... at a location dated June 18 of this year and several hundred miles from my current location.
I have been using Cerberus, works great without GPS. As long as the phone is on, you can control it, from listening to what people say, to take photo using front camera whenever they try to unlock the phone, dump sms and call logs. Hide it from drawer and invoke only through password enter via dialer And hundreds things more. In fact I just tracked my phone using browser on this I pad I'm viewing the forum with, via browser interface.
