Can Verizon Find My Flip Phone?

Verizon cannot find your basic phone or flip phone regardless of whether it has power or not since the ability to find a phone is only available on smartphones.

However, you can go into “My Usage” and see if your phone has been used since you lost it, which can give you a clue as to whether someone else has your device.

Additionally, Verizon recommends that if your basic phone is lost then you should suspend your service while you look for it so that it’s not used without your authorization.

You also can choose to cancel that phone completely if you think you’ve lost your basic phone for good and just get a new phone.

Can Verizon Find My Dead Phone?

Verizon can find your dead phone, but it depends on which device you’re trying to locate and the operating system you’re running on.

For example, if you have an iPhone 11 or newer, then you can track a dead iPhone thanks to an update on Find My from Apple.

This new update lets you track a phone that has a dead battery or has been powered off, but if you haven’t updated Find My then you may not have this option.

Additionally, those on an Android device in most cases can still track their Android phone if their phone is dead, but it’s not guaranteed.

Verizon can find your phone, but you need to have location services turned on and also have to Find My Device enabled if you’re on Android. Also, you will need to have Find My iPhone enabled if you’re on an iOS device for Verizon to find your Phone or for you to track your phone. 

However, Verizon cannot find a flip phone or basic phone, and if you find your phone on the map, remember that the location is approximate and not guaranteed to pinpoint the exact location,
