LOST OR STOLEN PHONES

Any modern smart phone has the built in ability to keep your data backed up to a number of cloud services so you never have a reason to lose contacts, SMSes, photos or anything really.

Apple has it's own iCloud service and Android will sync with your Google Account automatically. Both devices can also be connected to other cloud services like DropBox or OneDrive for even greater functionality. However it seems some people still do not take advantage of such services and when their phone is lost or stolen they are devastated to find their contacts and important data gone forever.
