    Hi everyone

    I lost my tablet (HTC). I've called the network to block IMEI. But if the theft only use WiFi without SIM card, can I still track him down?

    Thank you very much for your opinion.

    No, I haven't installed such program. Sounds like it's gone forever now. :-(

    I think its not possible to track the tablet if you have installed any tracking app in that one then you can easily track your tablet.

    NO its not possible to track back your tablet without installing any tracking app in that. Nowadays many tracking app are available in the market, so you should try them to prevent your device for next time.

    You can push an app from the Google Play store to your lost phone/tablet (via your Google Play/Market account) to locate it.
    Visit http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lookout.labs.planb

    It will try to email the location of your phone/tablet to your gmail account, using cell tower locations and/or GPS.
    May not work if your tablet does not have 3G or GPS.
