    file a police report. no, really. do it now. the carriers won't do tracing for anyone buy the police.

    also, it doesn't help now of course, but this is why your phone has a sync option. to have a copy of your pictures on your computer

    It is really sad to know about your stolen iphone. I understand how you are feeling and it is obviously a big problem when you lose all your important stored datas. One of my friend lost his phone and he had the same question like you but as far as I know he still could not trace it out. I do not think there is any way of tracing. Better luck next time.

    The police will not trace a stolen cell phone, too small of a crime for those resources. File a police report (give them the serial number), call AT&T have them block it, change any password that was associated with it; iTunes, email, IM messengers etc.

    The only way to really trace it would be with MobileMe and it's GPS tracking if you already had it turned on.

    And hopefully you had it password protected too.

    As everyone else has stated...synch your new phone often. Perhaps get mobile me for the find my phone feature. Sorry for your loss.

    I don't understand. Your iPhone isn't permanently attached to your body somehow? Everyone's iPhone here is.
