Stolen phone... what can they still access now it's blocked? Watch

    I left my phone in a taxi earlier today, realised I had about half an hour later and by then it was too late, it'd already gone. Pretty much my own fault for not checking for it when I left the taxi as I normally do, but there you go.

    Anyway, I've had it blocked by the network (Orange), so nothing can be done on my SIM. It's been blacklisted also so no SIM ever will work in it, because it's been reported as stolen. Luckily I have insurance on it and I sorted everything as soon as I realised, so I've got a new phone/sim on the way but I'm more worried about what they person can still do with my old phone.

    I was wondering, someone out there does have it so what exactly CAN they still access?

    Pictures, apps? It's not like I have anything to hide but the idea of someone going through all my files and messages is a bit upsetting .

    I've changed my Facebook password, so will it have logged me out on my phone, also? I'm a bit paranoid someone might just go through uploading all my pictures to facebook or something silly like that. I've changed all my passwords for things I was logged into on my phone, so will they all have logged out now?

    thanks for any help
