    Hey guys,

    So I know there is very little to be done in my situation, but I'm tired of trying to google for help and no one being in quite the situation. Here we go: I had my Samsung Aviator when I went out to breakfast Tuesday morning with my friend. I posted Facebook status and tagged the location of "Mickey's Dairy Bar" on it. Somewhere between then and the 8 block journey home, I lost my phone. The restaurant says they don't have it and I've torn my house apart looking for it, even backtracked the drive back to our house and did not see it along the road or anything. Of course the phone was dead soon after. I installed planB, where's my droid, and lookout-even though that won't do me any good now, all AFTER my phone was lost. Is there any way to get a last GPS signal location on my phone through my provider-US Cellular? Or any apps on my phone such as facebook, where I pinned my location that morning, that might be able to help. Anything you guys have, let me know.

    David

    Welcome to the forums!!! :D

    Your carrier may have its last pinpointed location.

    However, that's something that they generally use for law enforcement purposes. I'm not sure if they'd give that out for situations like this.

    Worth a shot I suppose right?

    Good resource for sure don. :thumbup: I don't think I've come across that one yet

    But I think his/her main problem now is that the phone has died, so even though plan b and the like could locate it, the phone is no longer powered on to transmit or download new apps.

    Yes but if someone finds it, they might charge it up and then we have a shot. ;) most use Micro USB

    If all else fails, call the carrier, get the IMEI blocked (And SIM if it's a GSM Phone) or whatever block CDMA Phones have (I don't know much about CDMA, we don't have it in the UK)
