I lost my T-mobile Galaxy S7 somewhere between the front seat of my car in the parking lot at the grocery store and the first few aisles inside the store. (None of us remember exactly if I actually carried it into the store.) We have torn apart the car, all our grocery bags, and the house with no luck. No one turned it in at the store. And, none of my three location apps (Google, AVG, Samsung) have been able to locate the phone.
The phone either ran out of batteries shortly after being lost, or someone found it and powered it off.
If someone powered it off, removed my SIM card, and put in a new one:
Would my phone number be alerted that the SIM card for my phone had changed? (When I bought a replacement phone and activated a new SIM, my phone got a text message saying the SIM card associated with my phone number had changed.)
Would my location apps be able to find the phone with the new SIM card?
