    I think it is to the regular consumer. But I read an article that even with a password, a hacker could access everything on the phone. Here is the article: http://www.iphoneatlas.com/2008/05/2...sily-bypassed/

    Regarding the hacking to retrieve personal information, I think this would be almost impossible except to extremely knowledgeable hackers.

    I would suggest contacting AT&T (or other provider) to see if there is any way to track where the phone is.

    your information is pretty safe because you have a password, but i'd call at&t and tell them to cancel your account. the person who now has it can just easily restore on itunes and have a brand new factory set iphone and still use your sim.
