    Unhappy Stolen Droid. What do they have access to?

    Hi guys,

    My new Droid unfortunately got stolen out here in Chicago last night. Sad day. Thankfully I still had my Tour laying around to reactivate for now. Anyways, I've placed an insurance claim already and had the phone flagged as stolen.

    My question is this: What do they have access to on the phone?

    The only things I could think of that were permanently logged in were my Google account and Facebook. I changed both passwords on those accounts, so what is still there on the phone? I couldn't find the info anywhere, so I'm curious if my email is stored in the cloud or on the phone? My main concern is them having access to 3 years worth of e-mail...but once they try to access it, it should prompt them for a password and not allow them to view anything I would think.

    As soon as I get the new one back, I'll definitely be getting WaveSecure. This is a terrible feeling

    No Pattern lock?

    Nope. My phone is essentially glued to my hands and I've always found those to be more of a pain. Hindsight is 20/20 haha.

    Sucks to hear. Well they pretty much have access to phone numbers and all that, but if you deactivated it then you should be ok. Hope you get another Droid!

    A lock pattern is an ideal method, but I have to agree that the lock pattern is a pain. I constantly look at my phone and a lock pattern would just be a hassle. Guess you just gotta watch after your stuff better

    Only problem I have with the lock pattern is if you angle the phone right you can see which direction you need to go for the lock pattern. I'm working on training myself to either wipe the screen after I unlock, or move my fingers all around so the smudges will not reveal the pattern.

    You can do patterns that cross back over themselves; makes it more secure.

    Just wondering if the droid has the option to lock on power up? If so that would be less of a hassle cause u only gotta do it once, and if u lose it as soon as they turned it off they would be screwed. But then they would just sell it for parts

    Go to gmail, look at the bottom of the page for 'last account activity' Hit 'Details' and then 'sign out of all other sessions.' Then change your password and call verizon to deactivate the phone asap.

    (I was an idiot and left myself logged in to a demo phone. Until I force logged and changed my password, I couldn't figure out why things kept downloading in the market. )

    I think a Stolen Droid would still be pretty useful if they never tried to reactivate it. I had mine Deactivated for a couple days...because of an update snafu. I could still use it on WiFi and it was great. Verizon has your mein and SN..and there is no way they can activate it...
