i have the same problem. lost my phone yesterday in a foreign city. the find my iphone app wont work if the phone is dead or the sim card is taken out. I know that isnt a helpful answer, but it might be nice for you to know you're not alone in trying to figure out a solution. The best solution may be to look on amazon or ebay

I don't know how many lines you have or you can budget: but if you can get another line to put a new Iphone on.. go that Route. Then suspend the line that the lost phone is on or put a non smartphone on it. An as soon as you can Pay that line off do that. One other i wanted to Suggest.. you could possibly Put the Iphone on your Bill ( Service Bill ) an pay it when the Bill come's that way she can get into a phone Right away.

But this is all just a suggestion i know Money can be Tight an phones are not Cheap An keeping a hold of them little Guys can Be a Task! Especially When other one's have there eye's on them....

I like your idea. You can put the new iPhone on the old line too but I see your point how it would be easier to get rid of or suspend it. You could do a family share with those two lines. For $59 you can have 2 lines loualty plan thats why my dad has. I just wanted to add that bill to account you can do $400 or less. They just changed it to less then it used to be. Deffinantly get insurance this time I would say. AppleCare plus is great if u break it but not lose it. It's $50 per time but the good thing about the vzw one it covers if u lose it although $160 or $190.
