Although my phone has no battery (cannot be reached), is there any way to track it down? If no, please block it as soon as possible until it is given to the owner. The school services were somewhat addressing my problem however it seems the person who took my phone wasn't cooperating. I want to make sure that during the times without my phone, nothing bad will happen (since my password is an easy guess).
