Default cell phone tracker app

My boyfriend got his cell phone stolen and its a sidekick. I was wondering if there is an app that tracks it using calls or something.

I use WaveSecure which does what you need. The only problem there is, you need to install it -before- you have your phone stolen.

Thanks, but I'm looking for one in the android market that I could use to track his phone without installations to his phone or sms tracking.

The free app "PhoneLock" shows on your phone under the fake name "–NotePad", accessible only with your password. Upon receipt of your secret SMS codes, PhoneLock sends its GPS location to a predetermined email address and/or SMS number, and/or remotely wipes the SD card and the phone's internal memory.

I can't find PhoneLock in the Market anymore. But if you're interested I can maybe send you the .apk file.

I've looked around in my backups but can't find a "Phonelock.apk" file. It must be in there but it's probably masked under another name.
Google can't find it either...

You can remote download any program onto the phone from market.android.com if you use the primary google account associated with the phone.

But file a police report and talk to your service provider. The service provider can track the device as long as it is on. Not sure they will, but it wouldn't hurt to ask them to track it and provide the info to police for a possible recovery. If nothing else, they can prevent the phone from making calls and dirty the ESN so it can't be used ever again.

Found it!
It is now called "Spy Phone Location Remote SMS"...
PhoneLock was easier!
Get it free from the Market on your phone:"market://details?id=com.FourCobblers.Free.PhoneLock" (without the quotes).
