    Nope. Best you can do is report the theft to your carrier and Apple so that your phone is flagged in their systems as stolen.

    nope all you can do is call AT&T and block your IMEI

    I was in the same boat as you - http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=666339

    Apple or AT&T will not sell you a subsidized phone

    You will need to find another iphone on your own. After that you can bring it to Apple and they will register the phone to your old number

    Does anyone know how the "location my iPhone" feature in the new 3.0 software works? I know its a MobileMe feature, but I was wondering if this can help if your phone does get stolen?

    Nope, it was just a screengrab, 3.0 is beta, that feature doesn't exist yet

    There is a remote-wipe feature for corporate customers. It is probably possible to get this activated. Maybe talk to Apple. It's probably just a special email or txt message. Doesn't bring your phone back thou

    I think they just implemented the Exchange remote wipe feature in the iPhone.

    do you guys think the police are going to hunt down every stolen iphone once 3.0 comes out? they would have to create a special iphone recovery task force.
