I have an old galaxy s3, I was thinking of storing it in my bike seat or a lockbox on my bike in case it gets stolen so i can track down my bike. Is there any way of doing this without a sim card(phone works without one) or a sim card without data, just minutes? I live in Canada and the cheapest simcard with a dataplan i can find is 711 speakout for$10 a month. Im looking to spend less than that, anyone have any ideas?

    Is your stolen bike more valuable than the trade-in value of the phone and the cost of the plan for tracking.

    Plus you'd most likely have to charge it on a daily basis. That being said, this question doesn't seem to be Android specific. You might have better luck asking on Bicycles

One possible solution would be to use avast! Anti-Theft which allows you to text 1234 LOCATE to your phone in order to locate it, replacing 1234 with your avast! PIN number.
