can pictures and files be accessed when a stolen phone is blocked?

Hi there,

 

My Virgin mobile was stolen today and I called straight away to block the mobile but I am very worried that pictures and files can still be accessed although my phone has been blocked, is this possible?

 

I'm just worried as I have a lot of personal information and I just wanted to make sure absolutely nothing can be seen/accessed.

 

 

Many thanks

How secure was your phone when you needed to use it yourself?

 

If you didn't have any unlock gesture or PIN defined, then I'm afraid all your personal data is available for the thief to see.

 

Blocking the phone via Virgin only prevents the thief from using the handset to make calls and run up excessive bills. They also cannot send texts or access the internet. Blocking does not stop them from using the other features of the phone.
