iPhone was Stolen - What now?
Big DookieSmells great!Houston, TXRegistered Userregular
So guys, my iPhone 4 was stolen. I was eating at a restaurant, got up to pay and realized I left my phone at the table, and when I went back it was gone. Couldn't have been more than a couple of minutes. It hadn't been bussed yet, and the tip was still there, so I know someone had to have seen it and snagged it off the table while I wasn't looking.
But anyway, my question is, what do I need to worry about?
I never signed up for MobileMe and didn't get the iPhone tracker program, because I was cocky and assumed I'd never be dumb enough to do something like this, but I'm obviously a moron and let someone steal it. I've already changed my email passwords and disabled my Work Exchange access, and I was at least smart enough to password lock my phone. I also called AT&T and disabled the line.
Even though it's password locked, is there any chance someone could still access the data on the phone, like my contacts and emails and stuff? What about all my apps like PayPal, iTunes, etc? Can they access the information from these apps?
I'm pissed that I'm going to have to buy a new phone now, but I'm more worried about this person accessing all of the personal data on the phone. Do I have any other options for making sure they can't do that, or am I pretty much just flying on a wing and a prayer?
