If someone stole my iPhone 4s and restored it from iTunes can I still track it with the lost iPhone app?

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1.2

    No. An iPhone that has been restored as a new device erases all its content and settings including your iCloud / Find My iPhone preferences.


    If it gets stolen report the theft to your local police in the same manner you would report any theft.


    Be sure to keep a record of its serial number, since it will be useful to identify its legitimate owner if and when it is recovered.


    If you have not registered it in My Support Profile, now would be a good time:
