Annoying, isn't it? As far as I know, unless you get lucky and hear the phone ringing when you call it, the information you get using services based on IP address will only be approximate. I'm not aware of any similar services based on IMEI number available to the general public.

On the other hand, the mobile providers in my area can add IMEI numbers of phones to a database that is shared with other mobile providers, making a lost or stolen phone unable to be used with any of the providers.

Another possibility is to use Google's location history (or its equivalent) if it is switched on in your phone.
