    If you have your Gmail ID and password you can install the free app AndroidLost on your phone from another internet connected device's web browser. Then you can:
    * read sent and received SMS messages
    * wipe phone
    * lock phone
    * erase SD card
    * locate by GPS or network
    * start alarm with flashing screen
    * send SMS from web page
    * message popup
    * forward calls
    * remote install
    * phone status: battery, imei, etc.
    * remote SMS alarm
    * remote SMS lock and unlock
    * remote SMS erase SD card
    * remote SMS wipe phone
    * remote SMS APN control
    * start/stop GPS
    * start/stop WIFI
    * hide from launcher
    * email when SIM card is changed
    * get call list
    * take picture with front camera
    * take picture with rear camera
    * make your phone speak with text-to-speech
    * SMS message command
    * SMS speak command
    * lock timeout
    * restore settings on boot
    * record sound from microphone
    * start and stop data connection from SMS
    * start and stop WIFI connection from SMS
    * content browser prototype

    before you take it to the Service people where you bought it for a basic reset. You don't want them to have access to your data either, do you? So better wipe it all before you hand it over.
    Of course you have a good, recent backup data set of the phone stored somewhere close so that you can restore that to the phone after its reset, don't you?
