I lost my iPhone on Friday night, and it seems that someone has since used it to try to access my Paypal account details. It had a SIM but wasn't active, I had been using it as a mini computer. It seems I had not set up Find My iPhone properly.



I have changed all passwords I can think of and O2 have blocked the IMEI number. I have reported it to the police so that I can be identified as the owner if it is ever recovered. I'm still worried, though, and wondering what else I can do.



I have set up forwarding on all email accounts associated to the phone so that new emails are forwarded to a new email address. If I delete apps via iTunes will they be removed from the iPhone the next time it connects over any wifi network? What else can I do?

iPhone 3GS, iOS 6.1.1
