Can the police track an cell phone that has no service or no sim card?

I'm just curious about this. Can they ?

    As long as it is on, it still has the ability to make emergency calls - even without a SIM or account.

    That means it is still connected to the mobile phone network & registering its IMEI with the cell towers, so it is traceable.

    If its turned off and not used at all its untrackable, if you use wifi it may still be trackable.

    If it does not connect to anything, it cannot be traced via the cell companies. However, if there was a sale of the phone somewhere, the information about that phone would be recorded with the buyer's info/credit card/etc.
