Is there any app which could send me a text for the new sim and the number and with the help of the number can i send a text back to perform some remote locking features. The point is when the phone is stolen and the thief has not switched on internet connectivity. Are there any apps in Android market which could give some clue even then ?

  • Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts, Rameez! Having used the lost-phone tag (which of course perfectly fits), have you consulted its tag-wiki? It contains some first-aid which most likely already answers your question. If not, come back here, edit your question, and explain what you checked and where you're stuck. – Izzy Jun 21 '13 at 23:42
  • Prey uses SMS messages for its control mechanism, but I don't think that's going to help you if there's a new SIM in the phone. – ale Jan 10 '14 at 23:40
  • @AlE.: Actually it might , I have McAfee Wave Secure , which will immediately send sms with the no inserted in sim . If you can control the mobile through SMS , then the duo combination can actually work , rite? – Rameez Ahmed Sayad Jan 13 '14 at 7:17

  • Does it also help, if the thief performs a factory reset? – ott-- Aug 23 '15 at 19:45

You can go on Google Android manager. Login on your which Google account you have inserted on your Android device. And after this you can lock your phone and you able to see the phone's last location.

    This might be a useful app, but I highly most of the features listed work without internet connectivity, so this doesn't answer the question asked. – Stephen Schrauger Oct 26 '14 at 2:30
  • You copied stuff from the other answer... – Thomas Vos Jun 17 '15 at 12:45
