    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    The only way to track another Android device would be via GPS... and GPS is only useful with the GPS capability enabled on the phone and some third party software loaded on the phone. Otherwise the carrier could, theoretically, track the phone (assuming it's stolen) but would typically only do it if requested by a court.
