There will be a big map displayed - if it doesn't then you didn't have geo-tagging setup

Wow, i think he's actually at a wedding right now! Wonder if the phone is even still in the country (looking at the internal shots)

I double checked - there's no GPS info on that photo

If you ever manage to find out who he is (and you should eventually be able to, with those pics) then you could REALLY frighten him by sending him random pictures of his family...

And I hope no one says thats out of order, HE STOLE THE PHONE!

Can you take those pictures to the taxi company and ask which driver it is?

I know that seems simple, but sometimes things get overlooked.

Unfortunately you can tell by the design of the buildings that that isn't the U.K.

But these were uploaded to my drop box on 3rd november, but the photo's only upload when he uses a wi-fi connection, so could of been before that when they were ACTUALLY taken, he could be back in the UK NOW. I've installed plan b to the phone but havent received anything yet.

If he's a registered taxi driver he will be back at some point.

Can you log into Google dashboard? https://www.google.com/dashboard/

If the phone is listed under devices, clicking on it will tell you the IMEI

That's if he doesn't give the phone to a relative.. sorry!

Epic idea on the Google Dashboard btw - i just checked my own and found the number. Maybe peek around there

Well by default it backs up the contacts. So if he's been using your account which it looks like he may be doing, you can using the same dashboard see what contacts are there. Who knows...maybe he will have done something stupid like put "Wife" or "mum" as a contact which would help police track him down.

Go to this - https://www.google.com/contacts

And see if there's anyone you don't recognise in there!

Thanks to everyone's help, I've managed to get them the IMEI number, got all the photo's in a dropbox link that updates automatically and all the relevant info. Fingers crossed.

I just thought....if you can see his contacts, can you remotely update his contact numbers so that he ends up calling you? You can get his number that way then

Those photos definitely look like they were taken outside the UK (yes, we kinda established that already), but photo 41 has a bottle of Sprite with a logo in non-English characters on the label. Also, photo 74 shows a DVD playing - it's Transformers: Dark Side Of The Moon, 53 minutes in, but with English subtitles, so obviously originally dubbed into another language.
In "Monopoly", what makes the "Super Tax" so super?
