    Holla,

    My iPhone 6 Plus has been stolen while I was at the mall with my friends. I am really desperate as it was brand new, just bought it last month.

    It was an iPhone 6 Plus 32GB Space Gray version.

    I don't have any info from the phone, like the IMEI number or other codes. When I try to call it, the voice mail responds, so the guy probably has throw off the SIM card.

    What should I do now? How to track a iPhone and find it to get it back?

    Thiefs beware. Apple has made their products traceable. I recall maybe 3 or more years ago a friend of mine, who was a iphone lover, said this was going to be a new feature on apple products. Looks like it works. Most thief's might not know that this type of technology exist, so you might be able to get it back in time before it gets hacked into.

    Man, this is awesome. I am so paranoid about losing mine. I will definitely have to get acquainted with how the process works. You never know what could happen. I am glad that you found your phone.

    The good thing is you got the phone back.

    Aswell as Apple, most other security programs also have a tracing system in place aswell now so more and more devices are getting recovered these days and that can only be a good thing.

    If you have synced it on your computer, then it's easy to track it. But I'm not sure how you'll do that if you didn't sync it first.

    First what you want to do is try to use Find My iPhone to find out if it is at a lost and found or if it actually is stolen. Then if you know for fact that it’s stolen you might want to remotely erase all the data on it to prevent any theft of data. If it doesn’t have Find My iPhone then sadly there is no way to find it.

    You can use something like MaxxSpy. Just install it on your phone and you can track it from your computer. MaxxSpy allows positioning and monitoring functions on the phone

    Another thing I'd just like to add, I wouldn't pay for any particular software that tracks a device. Like I said, most antivirus software that you can download these days, also has that ability aswell.

    Just a quick look on the store and you'll see quite a few that you can try.
