You can also call the Airtime provider for the most recent call's made on your account. Get the numbers of the people the lost phone is calling and you can trace it back to the person making the calls.

Why don't you call your own cell and see who picks up??
Whoever picks up ask them to return it to you!
That is if you're sure it wasn't stolen..

If the phone is still on, your provider will know in what cell it is. Mobiles contact the network frequently.
So you'll be at least able to narrow it down to home/work/lover, ...etc.

Some providers offer this as a regular service.
Talk to your provider - and I wish you luck, happened to me twice and once recovered it.

Cheers,
Sebastian
