I lost my iPhone, so I went on the computer and tracked it through iCloud. At first it was offline (battery was dead, calls went straight to voicemail), but I set up alerts and the lock mode so I got an email as soon as it came online. It was at a residential address so I knew someone took it, so I called AT&T and had them suspend my service after trying to call them to get my phone back.
I’m now thinking I don’t want whoever took it to have access to all my information on my phone. Does the lock screen still work with the service suspended? I tried unsuspending so I could wipe the phone, but they have to restart the phone in order for it to work again, so it is currently offline find my iPhone and service is active.
