I lost my Iphone 3Gs recently. I was wondering if it can be tracked when connect with WiFi. It's already blocked by network provider and reported stolen too.

If you have a service called "MobileMe" it is possible to use the "Find My iPhone" feature as long as the phone is online. Of course, MobileMe is a subscribed service, so you would know if it was installed on your phone. In either case, that would be the only way to do it. If you contact Apple Technical Support they will tell you to take the serial number or the IMEI number to your local police department so they can make a record of it. Technical support and your carrier will not be able to track your phone.

It probably could but your phone company isn't going to make that much hassle about a stolen phone
