    Thank you Amarjit for helping us out. Most people might be having a query that IMEI tracking will work only when the phone is on .Till then we cannot track the lost mobile. So guys, people should understand one thing that whoever took your phone or even if it is lost. It will be used by someone some or the other day and whenever that day comes, the phone will be easily tracked down.
