    You can locate a lost Android phone with Android Device Manager - it has been added to every Android phone running 2.2 or higher. For this to work it must be connected to a network and not have been wiped/reset yet.

    Android Device Manager lets you locate your device on Google Maps in a browser, and you can ring your device for five minutes. You can also use it to wipe personal data, if you set it up in the Google Settings app on your device before hand.

    Android Device Manager:

    If you don't get it back you can report it as lost or stolen, that will blacklist it from getting cell service.
