Actually, don't believe movie BS, you do not need to make a call: as soon as the phone is turned on and connects to the network, it can be triangulated.

When I worked for one of the operators a while back, my boss had his personal phone stolen. He had a chat with the network people and was then able to go to the thief's home, knock on the door and politely request the return of his (locked but still turned on) phone. No calls had been made.

He got the phone back, BTW.
