    Nope.

    You need to have location services, internet AND find my iphone app ON.

    All 3.

    And if whoever stole it/found it turned it off then you cant do anything.

    Well theres stuff for jailbroken phones but it wont do you any good to be honest.
    Because the minute someone turns off the phone and/or restores it, it doesnt matter what you have on there. It will be gone.

    I would say just be very careful. I have eyes in the back of my head when it comes to my phone. Dont leave it anywhere, i dont even leave it on the table at friends' houses to go to the bathroom.

    Better safe than sorry

    If you put a lock code on your phone then they can't get in your phone to turn it off.

    you dont have to get IN the phone to turn it off. It turns off from the power button.

    i think he was referring to location services but you're right, it doesn't make any difference. As long as the person that has your phone is savvy enough to know that the phone can be tracked when its on, then they're just going to turn it off anyways.
