Google's Android Device Manager helps you to remotely locate your device and wipe your phone’s data, if it is lost or stolen. It also provides protection to your lost phone by enabling remote locking. I found this info in here, give it a look it wold be helpful, http://www.spinfold.com/less-known-android-features/

How exciting! It is common to see people losing their phone everywhere. But most of us don’t know how to find it back. Wow, this article helps us a lot. Before I read this, I only saw iKeyMonitor http://goo.gl/dozkKO on some websites and it introduced this software can track lost or stolen phone. I looked at it and found it sounded good. Of course, if we have more ways to find our phone, the better.

No way to track an offline phone with Android Device Manager. I've found a good alternative named TruSpy. It can track offline phones. Coordinates are sent silently using SMS.

If the phone is offline, how can I still track it?

Interesting...is there a way to access past Android phones? If there is, I'd like to see if I could track my previous phone, which was stolen...
