FIND YOUR LOST OR STOLEN IPHONE OR ANDROID PHONE
Nothing is more frustrating then not being able to find your phone. And to even think it was stolen! The world has ended! LOL! I've cobble together the best information I could find to help you retrieve your lost or stolen iphone or Android (phone or laptop).
Of course, if you think it's merely lost, maybe in your house or car, have your friend call the number or you can even text yourself from a computer (over and over).
First off, you as a good guardian parent of your phone, should have installed the free software/app to help you find your phone after it's missing. Didn't do it? Shame on you! It still can be found anyway with the tricks I've discovered.
Now, if you know, for sure, that your phone or tablet were actually stolen, then make a police report. Don't try to retrieve the phone from the thief yourself, unless you actually know them and aren't sure they're going to kill you. (People are bad nowadays.) You can help the police by tracking it down yourself, but make sure you have the police do the door knocking.
FINDING AN IPHONE:
Hopefully, you've downloaded the app, 'Find My Iphone" free from the Itunes store. If not, you're totally screwed and the thief will send you a thank you card for your $700 iphone. Just kidding, but it is harder to retrieve.
Stolen or just lost, you still go to Apple Icloud Website. This is the Apple site to go to to lock your phone (add a passcode that you set) so no one else can use it. You can un-passcode it later, but no one will be able to see those 'naughty' pics or texts you have on there. You can make your phone play a loud funny sound (don't use this if it's stolen to let on that you're trying to find it). As a method-of-last-resort, you can choose to erase your phone data and stuff. Hopefully you've made copies of your phone numbers and data to iCloud before, you can download it to your phone if you retrieve it or a new phone if you buy another iphone.

FINDING AN ANDROID PHONE OR TABLET
Android has their own app to help you get your phone or tablet back, called, "Prey". Install it on your phone or tablet now: Android Prey. Prey has a free app or a Pro app, that allows you to do more including on demand reports about your phone's use, multiple devices can be tracked and active Simcard change detection when someone is trying to re-use your phone for their own dastardly devices.
Without an app for Android
No App Installed. See this video if you never installed an app, but you still had to do some things to be, 'pro-active' in case you lost your phone in the future, like your GPS has to be turned on in your settings.
