    Only way to track it is through a MobileMe subscription. If you restored your phone when you got it all settings would be cleared, such as the MobileMe account information.

    Unless the previous owner was a total fool, he/she wiped it before giving it to you. So therefore, no, unless he/she has a MobileMe account on it and enabled "Find My iPhone". Look in the mail settings. Make sure only your email accounts are configured.

    It sounds WAY creepy that he would even want to track your location.
