What are the chances that you can recover a lost smartphone using a locator feature?

You might have read about someone breaking into the late Steve Job's house this month and stealing a bunch of stuff.  It turns out that when you use a stolen iPad that belonged to Steve Jobs, Apple notices.  They notified the police, a search warrant was issued, and the burglar was arrested.  So if your name is Steve Jobs, I'd say the chances are actually pretty good that your gear can be recovered.  Whether the police would actually go the the trouble of getting a search warrant if your name isn't Steve Jobs is a different question, judging by the reluctance of my local police to even bother taking a police report when my garage was broken into and my lawnmower stolen.
