Full story below:

I was in the bus and I lost my phone. So I sent a sms to activate Prey. I tried calling it many times and the person that had it turned it off. But when she replaced the SIM card, Prey sent the new number to my other phone. I called the new phone number and “she” told me I should call back in 20 minutes and after that I didn’t have contact with her again. She turned off her phone too.

So with just her phone number I made a search and I found her address and her home phone number too.
I called her home phone number and I said if she doesn’t give back my cell phone I would call the police. So she gave my phone in the bakery near my house. Prey is Fantastic.
