Everyone loves their mobile phones including me. And never want to lose it. Keep the phone protected with a complicated but easily remembered password. As noticed device get lost, Inform as soon as possible to your service provider maybe they able to help by disabling your sim card since finder couldn't make any fraud. Likely file a complaint with local authorities. Finally, I suggest taking insurance while purchasing a new mobile phone that not only recovered your mobile phone from damage but also gives you surety of getting back even if you lost by mistake or get stolen. They afford good price if they are unable to do.
