Tracking a Stolen iPhone with GPS without 'Find My iPod'?

My iPhone has been stolen and the location services has been turned off. I have it in lost mode. It is still connected to my accounts and has been renamed. This was lost over the weekend and I am starting to get desperate.
It is an AT&T phone.
I would not like to contact the police, I will if I have to.

Anyways, what I want to do is track the phone with a GPS. I know there is one built in. I am not sure but I think I can also track the Sim Card from the phone company. I am not sure if I can activate it without the phone though.
I know there is a way to track it with the 'Location Services' off, you see it all the time weather it is on TV Shows, Movies, Work, and so on. On TV I regularly see the Government tracking it, of course I know it is illegal to do that. I think I can pay for it to be tracked with GPS but that would cost A LOT.
I really need that phone back, Please help.

Contact AT&T. They can try and track the sim card or tell you if it's been deactivated. Same with GPS location. Depending on type of I phone did you get insurance on it? In order to claim you have to file a police report.
