Hi all, my g/f iphone was stolen on the weekend and we are trying to locate it. I have contacted several people and they advise it can't be tracked. It wasn't logged with findme services or anything but I do have the IMEI number? The phone had some very important family photos and video on and we really want to find it

Does anyone have any information that could help....please?

    Apple will not assist in tracking the device.
    Unless you had MobileMe with the FindMyiPhone enabled, you're pretty much out of luck.

    There is a reason why the iPhone should be synced and backed up regularly and you should not use it for storage of important items. It is portable and as such, easily misplaced or stolen.

    I am sorry that her phone got stolen, but this is an important lesson for you both to learn. Sync and back up your iPhone regularly and do NOT use is as the sole storage device for important materials. At that point, it's your decision whether or not to invest in MobileMe or similar solutions for tracking stolen/misplaced devices.
