    I've just lost my Samsung android phone. There's no battery left so it has turned off. GPS isn't enabled. I have already logged on using my Samsung ID on their website, but as there is no power let in the phone and I didn't enable remote access in my settings previously, this is no use. How can I trace and locate my phone?

    You can't. The phone isn't emitting a signal for you to trace it in the first place. Also, did you even activate Find My Mobile on the phone? If not, then how about Android Device Manager? If also no, then just start looking for a new phone to buy.

    • Your device is connected with your Google account.
    • Your device has access to the internet.
    • Allowed Android Device Manager (ADM) to locate your device (turned on by default). This can changed in the Google Settings app.
    • Allowed ADM to lock your device and erase its data (turned off by default).
      You can get more info http://trendblog.net/how-to-track-your-lost-android-phone-without-tracking-app/
      I think once you may try this.
