I lost my phone at a store. Is there a locator built in the device?
There is. You can find instructions here:
Wooooow I should of known this before. I called tmobile help and they never told me this smh. But now I got my back up phone and a new sim card with it, but I have my same number. When I go to locate my phone on windowsphone.com I can't because all my info went to the exhibit phone I have now which is not windows. Is there anyway I can get my information back into my windows phone. PLEASE HELP!!!
Only if the phone connects to a wifi network (which is unlikely as Windows Phone turns off wifi when the screen's off except when charging, and that's even assuming it's somewhere that it has had an available network preconfigured). Once you deactivated the SIM card in the phone, you killed the data connection, and without that data connection there's no way for the phone to communicate its location.
