And this is when they've actually arrested you for something. Even then they'll only be looking for shit to do with what you're nicked for - hence why we were ok, got nicked doing other shit.
So yeah, lost phone, don't stress. You've done all the right things so sleep easy
Thanks JBM, I suspect anyways it is in the hands of some average thief, who just likes his new phone after a reset. One thing is, I had a card inside with some data, mainly music, don't know what else. I definitely learned from that.
