I lost my iPhone yesterday, while i was travelling in a rickshaw. I suspect that it is in there with the driver. I have IMEI number and the phone is GPS enabled. Also, currently that mobile has no service, since it's had US Mobile service and i'd been using it in India. Is there any possibility of tracking it? Any suggestions? I had some important documents, photos in it.

Did you try Find my iPhone, was it enabled ? Was iCloud enabled ? If yes then there is a faint chance the phone might show up on find my iphone, provided it is not wiped clean / restored by someone.If it was jailbroken and the thief tries to do a "reset all settings" the phone will go into a mode where only possible solution will be full restore and till that time the phone will be unusable (and also untraceable)

It seems there is a high chance that you did not have iCloud setup and find my iPhone enabled. Anways that works only when iPhone is receiving some sort of internet connection.

i guess the original invoice would be required in either of the cases to prove that it is indeed your phone?

i hope the cops take it seriously, it cost not less than 20k, did have some cash with it. And, i'm serious about documents inside the iPhone.
