    if they find the phone and restore it, then you have lost all hope.

    Yes, it can be restored to factory settings.

    That does mean that your data is safe, which I know is minor consolation.

    I assume you've reported it to Verizon as lost or stolen? I could be wrong but I don't think they can activate it here once you've done that, but they could use it as an iPod or sell it overseas to be unlocked to a different carrier.

    once they restore the phone, all your info will be wiped. but if you havent called to cancel/report your phone stolen, then they will still have service. but if you report it stolen they will not be able to activate it again.
