For Online Computer Support, Ask a Computer Technician
Hi,My name is ***** ***** certified professional with over 10 years experience. I will be glad to assist you with this. .I am sorry to hear that happened.
Unfortunately the only apps that are helpful are the ones that are preinstalled(prior to losing). The apps like android lost can be sent to the device while it is powered on, however they have to be physically set up from the target phone, so they are not any help to you now. I am very sorry for the bad news, your only hope is to keep tracking with the android device manager and maybe someone will find it or use it so that the gps location will show on your map.
Please let me know if you need any other assistance.
Please take a moment to rate my service positively by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then click on submit.
Thank you very much!
yes, that app works the same as the android device manager. It relies on the same set up.
the android lost app will enable gps by contacting google, however it will only work when the phone is online.
I have already lost my phone. Can I still register this app?
No, unfortunately you will have to install and register this app before you lose it.
You can install the app remotely from the Google play store but to register you will have to start the app and that can only be done on the phone.
yes, it has to be registered. When it installs on the phone you have to open the app. You can go ahead and send it, if someone picks up the phone and taps on the app it will automatically register to the google account on the phone. The app icon is disguised as Phone Notes icon. It will appear on the home screen if someone uses the phone they may tap on the icon. If the phone is lost and no one finds it, the app will be of no help.
yes, that is giving the last know location and it is still registered on your google account.
what is the device you are using?
Is the lost phone showing as current on android device manager?
okay, this sounds like the google server may not be completely updated. Keep a check on it every hour or so as you can. If it comes online it will have the last known location.
