All it shows me is where I live..yet I lost it at my school... can't I call T-Mobile so that they can track it even if it's off?they have that kind of technology...right?
If it's off, there's no way to find it. Off means off. It doesn't communicate with anything. It's virtually as if the battery has been removed (except you have the ability to turn it on with a physical pressing of a button).
The location services (find my phone and such) can only tell you the last known place. Then again, it won't give it to in as granular of a location as you're probably hoping (it would probably give you the location you turned it off. You probably know where you turned it off, so that wouldn't help).
