    There's an app called SeekDroid.

    The only problem with that is that the gps icon comes on, so they'll know something's up.

    Seems like this is a little shady... but i will assume the best and by that I mean that it is your phone and it is stolen. Not that it is somebody else's phone and all you have is their phone number.


    You can use Android lost. Now if location services are off you will not be able to find the device without turning them on. The app will for most phones be able to momentarily turn the gps on query location and email it back to you. Now since the phone is connected to the email account the message would come up in your notification... but google allows you to apply filters to your email. Thus, you can filter emails from Android Lost to go directly to a folder you specify skipping the inbox and thus not showing up as a notification on the phone.

    you can also query the phone via text message it will send back a link where you can see the GPS location embedded.

    hmmmm... I do not know about this. Well if it is your Gmail account then you can go to the android market and push plan b. If it is not tied to your gmail account, well you are out of luck.

    Cut your losses and have the phone shut off.
