Hello! My name is***** will work diligently to provide accurate advice and information.
Apple does have the "Find My iPhone/iPod/iPad” feature available for iCloud users BUT the key fact is that you must have registered the device for this service at some point prior to losing it.
However, if you've ever registered the device with iCloud, it's possible this was enabled for you. You can sign in to the following site to see if the device is registered.
Note: You would sign in with the Apple ID used for iCloud or to make Store purchases.https://www.icloud.com/#find
If your device is registered there and the person who has it now has not removed it from the network, you can send it messages, track it's location and remotely erase your personal data off the drive.
If you are running iOS 6 or later you will also have access to Lost mode. While in Lost mode, your device will keep track of where it’s been and report back to you any time you check in with the Find My iPhone app.
For additional security, if your device was running iOS 7 and is erased, the user must sign in with the Apple ID that was used to erase it before it can be activated again.
Your next step is to suspend data service so that others can not use the phone.
If you believe the device was stolen, the person who has it now can erase the device on a computer and you would no longer be able to track it so you may wish to try and get in contact with the Police Dept. File a Police Report for the device. Call the non-emergency number of the police department with jurisdiction over the area in which the theft occurred. They will direct you to another law enforcement agency, if necessary.
The police will ask you questions about the theft, in order to file a police report for your device. Give as many important details about the device to the police as you can, including the serial number, which may help them them apprehend any person responsible and recover your lost/stolen device.
Also, report your missing device to an online site like http://www.stolen-property.com
. Sites like this are used by pawn shops and others to track lost/stolen property that comes into their business.
