Most portable device recovery systems require installation before the device is lost or stolen. Here’s the only device recovery system that I’m aware of that doesn’t need to be pre-installed: Plan B for Android. PC Magazine published a good review which called it “an easy, last-ditch effort to locate your device without having the app pre-installed”. It uses both GPS and cell-tower triangulation to locate your lost phone. The only downside: it works on pre-Honeycomb Android releases only.
