Questions and Answers

How do you track a phone in a remote island in the Cook Islands/?

I forgot my Samsung login account and I cannot track my phone.

In order to be able to track your device you would have had to download an application that would allow you to be able to track the phone in case it was lost or stolen. In addition to this the device would also need to have signal to be tracked because without it emitting a signal you would not be able to track the phone effectively.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Based on the information above you do not have the application downloaded to your phone meaning that you are not going to be able to locate your device remotely due to not having the application installed on your device before losing it on the island.

I have misplaced or lost my cell. Can it be located through internal software?

I've misplaced it and the battery is dead and my message answering responds

If the charge of the battery is down, then it means that any signal to the phone is lost. It is impossible to track the phone. The answering message (Voicemail) is recorded at the computer of the carrier.
