    I have a Nokia cell phone. In short, I've lost it. Is it possible to turn
    a cell phone on remotely ? Is there no code you can use to turn on your
    cell phone so that you can call it. If not, why hasn't that been invented
    yet ?

    reply to group only.

    Thank you.

    Re: Remotely turning on cell phone

    you can trace any cell phone to within half a mile inside the UK [actually
    that figure has been redefined since 9/11] provided a battery is charged &
    inside it, as the phone gives off a coded signal, even when we have switched
    it off. Such information is provable within the UK, as it was used to secure
    a double murder conviction of a couple of drug dealers in Essex some years
    ago..
    In practice if the phone has been stolen, it already has been reprogrammed &
    recoded for a new user within an hour of it being stolen.

    Place your phone next to a radio or similar device that picks up
    interference when your mobile transmits. You will soon see that with
    the phone switched off it is sending and receiving no data whatsoever,
    so there is no chance of anyone tracking you if the phone is switched
    off.

    Simple triangulation will give a very accurate position of the user
    when the phone is switched on, and if its on and you aren't using it
    it still transmits data back to the network now and again, so they
    could still track you.
