Best answer

Hi. You can only attempt to trace/track and locate your Vodafone VF685 phone if:

  1. You had activated the 'Vodafone Protect' app if it came with one - or a similar app
  2. Data connection must also be enabled and the phone must have data bundles or airtime
  3. And the thief must NOT have hard reset (factory reset) it as that will delete either of the tracking apps.
  4. If the above does not apply, then the best you can do is to open a case and leave the whole to Police Officials' hands :(
