Hi, last thursday (8/9/11), i was mugged for my phone and wallet. I contacted Telecom to have the number blocked and also contacted the police. Is there a way to track the stolen phone with the IMEI number? It is a Samsung Galaxy 550, black colour and has a GPS system. I'm not sure if it has been switched off or if the sim card has been replaced. I would really like to get it back. any help will be much appreciated as I only purchased it 2 months ago

You can remotely install Plan B if it has an active data connection and is still hooked up to your google account: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.lookout.labs.planb&hl=en

Then you can track where it is
