"If you turned on remote tracking or whatever its called u can. It's new and does not come standard with it on"
I think that you are referring to "Offline finding". This only works if the phone is ON.
The Offline refers to not being on a cellular network. Essentially the device will use BT, etc. to communicate with other nearby Samsung devices and report back to the Samsung mothership. The phone must still be powered on for this to work.
