Customer Question
Lost a device that has...
Lost a device that has died. Device manager not showing last known location, but google map data shows enough to make an educated guess that it at least traveled with me back from LAX to ATL.Any other ideas for tracking this device down to at least see it's last known location? Not sure why Android Device Manager isn't showing any history.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you with your question today. Unfortunately, if the phone is dead, there really isn't any way to ping the phone to help track it down. If it was on, there are options where you can send a signal to the phone to have it ring or alert you of its location, but since it is dead, you will not have that ability.

The only option at this point is the old-fashioned way of retracing your steps to see if you can remember where you may have misplaced it. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news for this one.

I am not asking to ping it I am asking to see it's last known location. This is readily available on my iPhone and I am certain the phone is tracking it somehow as I am able to see it through Google, but it does not give me accurate enough information because it is,just tracking my gmail account, which is set up on two devices
