I recently misplaced a phone that did not have gmail account configured and did not have a SIM card in it either. Is there any way I can track it ?

All of the tracking apps either require sending an SMS (needs SIM card) or OTA install(needs Gmail account).

I do have the IMEI number of the phone.

  • You can tell all the carriers of your country to track that IMEI number if its possible.

  • Looks like the only way you can track it is: If you see it somewhere, follow it. Sorry -- but what do you expect? Either you forgot some additional facts (WLAN turned on, some app is running and sporadically connecting something, whatever) -- or you expect some special feature hidden so well that not even the developers know of...

No, there is no way to track it without having it configured in some way to connect to a wireless source of data. Without a SIM card you can't do that via a service provider and without having the Google account configured (and thus an authentication token that identifies your phone) you can't do it via WiFi (if you have it turned on).
