Does anyone knows inside facts about iphone i.e. does iphone contain tracker inside. Basically one of my friend brought cheap iphone from someone and he thinks that iphone was stolen...and many people told him that iphone contain tracker or some short of technology that tracks ur location...soo just wondering is any one knows the answer of this question. Yes there are software available that tracks your location but i am sure when you perform factory reset all the software should get removed.....

To use the "Find my iPhone" app, you would have had to have that setup prior to loosing the phone so that you can track it.

All cell phones are trackable, using their unique imei number. That is registered with all cell towers in range of the device when it is turned on. That is what the "Find my iPhone" app uses to track your phone if it is lost or stolen. Even if the SIM is changed, the IMEI number is hard-wired into the phone. I don't think it can be changed.
