My sim card was in my iphone when it was stolen obviously. and yes, i know for a fact it was stolen because it was in a case, and the person left the case in my jacket pocket and took the phone. Anyway...
is there ANY way I can erase the data off my sim card so they can't use it? Because I hate notes, pictures, etc. that I don't want them to see. Can I do something to make sure they can't see those things??
I already called Rogers and they deactivated my phone, so the person cannot use the calling features...but what about the other features? like my apps, notes...how can i erase the data so they can't view my stuff, specifically my notes.

PC, Windows XP

    No data is stored on the SIM card with an iPhone. The only data stored on the SIM card with other phones that support this is contact info, which is limited to 2 phone numbers and an email address only.

    The iPhone includes a Passcode Lock feature along with an erase data option which will erase all iPhone data after 10 failed passcode attempts.

    If you didn't have the Passcode Lock feature enabled, whoever stole your iPhone can access everything.

    You need to change the password for every email account you were accessing with the iPhone's mail client.

    This is the only thing you can do. If you weren't using the Passcode Lock feature, you should have.

    Iphone does not store to the SIM card.

    If you set the passcode to erase content, then it will. If you did not set the passcode, then they will have access to everything.

    You should change all of your passwords - e-mail, etc.
