Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

 

You should report the theft to the Police, file a report & get a crime number, hopefully your home contents insurance, assuming you have any will cover the loss, as for getting it back or tracking it, although technically possible it rarely happens.

Re: Stolen Vita

I had my 80gig PS3 stolen last year. It was reported to the police and I had called Sony to see what they could do. The rep told me: "We do not have the technology to trace or block a console." When I asked if there was anything they could do, I was told no. All I could do was to go online and change my passwords/delete billing information and deactivate it (which the Sony rep did) along with other PS3's linked to it. As far as the Vita goes, unless told otherwise, it's probably the same. I hope you can get it back though, it's never easy when you get something stolen, no matter what it is.

If the Vita is 3G and you have a plan with ATT, AtT can track it for you.

Maybe if a major crime had been committed along with it (i.e. murder) they would assist the police in tracking it. Otherwise, no, they won't.

they could be possibly traced to its exact point if you knew the MAC address of the unit but people ever rarely take note of these and getting the police to actually assist is another story....and as far as it being traced by AT&T,im sure who ever stole it has removed that sim card for the service unless they are just stupid,but most criminals are as to why they usually get caught..lol
