Will the police track a stolen phone?

I stole a phone from work and now I'm scared to use it because I think they'll track me down then arrest me. I have it off with the battery out. Will the police track it for a long time? What can I do?

    I never thought a phone could be tracked unless it was used . Hopefully it has on GPS device in it. You really shouldn't talk about it over the internet. Return the phone or get it out of your possession.

    I guess they could if they wanted to. But depending on the victim they may hire someone.

    If the phone is on or has a battery supply, it can be tracked if the GPS is enabled. Your best bet is to return the phone and hope not to be caught.
