Unfortunately, there is nothing that you can do to locate a phone that is turned off and in your house. The location option would only show your location (house) and not the exact location inside of the house.

Yes, a phone that is powered off cannot be located. There isn't a way to power it on and locate it.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
