    Unhappy Lost my droid =(

    My phone was lost/stolen. What should I do? Is there any way to recover the contacts (the non gmail users) or pictures from the phone online? I just had it for a month so I didnt really do any backing up of anything.

    Also, how do I protect/disable the information that was on the phone? I had a security keypad in the front but I'm worried that it could be compromised.

    Help!

    All contacts that were sync'ed with google will be there for ya.
    Did you kill service on it and report it stolen/missing?
    Insurance?
    WaveSecure or Shield Defense on it?
    A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone.

    to bad we can't test out the app that will find your phone if it is ever lost or stolen...

    or the one that will lock it so nobody else can access information...

    Unhappy

    I suspended service on it and reported it lost/stolen to verizon.

    I didnt even know about wave defense etc.

    I have insurance so I'm getting a replacement droid on Monday.

    I have the Where's My Droid app on it but I never tried using it because I have no idea how i could.

    Care to share the circumstances as to when/where you last used it, and why you think it may have been stolen? I've misplaced mine many a time, and by calling from another phone always found it. Usually very embarrassing as it was usually right where I swore it couldn't be!

    Sorry to hear your dismal tale! Lucky you had the insurance. Let us know if they replace it with a new phone or a refurb (if it's possible to tell). Did they charge your card the $89.00 deductible?

    On that note - does anyone know if you find a phone after receiving a replacement, can you return it and get a refund on the $89.00? Just getting my act together should I misplace it just one more time!

    I know its lost/stolen because I was at a new years eve party at a hotel. I realized that my clutch purse seemed lighter than it supposed to so i looked around and found my wallet and other things but could not find my droid! I searched the entire floor. By the time I realized it someone may have already picked it up and taken it for themselves. My droid is gone =(.

    I got charged the $89 deductible.

    Ouch. I now feel your pain! But - all will be better come Monday! And hopefully, when the thief goes to make a call, it will blow up in his thieving face!

    haha. well i remember a story about the police working with at&t by using the phones gps to locate a stolen truck, the owner left his phone in the center console and they traked it that way.

    but since verizon is sending a new phone the old one is black listed and cant be turned on correct?
