    So I had my phone stole earlier on and I've rang 02 so they've barred my handset and sim, does this mean there's no signal etc? Can they still go on my pictures and messages? Not very good on the whole technology front.

    I am not hiding anything "bad" on my phone but I have obviously sent things to my friends that would be a joke to us but others might not find it a joke.....
    Btw, its an iphone and it had a pass code but theyll probably be able to crack the code easy enough as it's only a 4 digit code..

    Yes, if they've barred the phone it means that the phone will not receive signal.

    They can only access your information if they guess the passcode. After 10 failed attempts, the phone should erase itself. May I ask what the passcode is?

    Did you not try tracking it with 'Find My iPhone' on iCloud?

    If they get in, they'll be able to access any media including photos, videos, music as well as contacts and messages. They just won't be able to use it, for calls or texts.

    Even if they disapprove of your jokes with your mates, what are they going to do, call the police? It's a stolen phone!

    Okay, just seen your PW: and deleted it in my comment so no one else can see.

    To be fair you've jumbled it up fairly well, as opposed to '0000' or '1234' like some people have. I don't think they'd guess that in under 10 guesses so you're probably quite safe mate.

    Aah that's a shame, why don't you have iCloud enabled!

    Don't worry, everyone sends "questionable" texts! Someone went to look at my phone in school the other day and I reacted faster than Bruce Lee on meth. Hopefully whoever has your phone will call your home number or a contact and let them know where it is, or you could have it tracked by a provider. Good luck!

    Yep. My iPhone and my Macbook just next to it! Both are with me in bed :cool:

    Shame about your phone but you'll be pretty safe content wise mate, I'm sure of that. Your passcode wasn't an obvious one so I wouldn't worry
