    physically lost or broken?

    If broken, what is wrong.
    If physically lost and you did not have a findmyphone kind of app installed, you are still out of luck.

    Change your account passwords, including Gmail. That will stop anyone who finds your phone from accessing the Google accounts. I'd also contact the carrier and notify of the lost immediately.

    Before you do that, goto the Play Store on another device, login with your Gmail ID and password, install the free app "AndroidLost" on your phone remotely. Then goto AndroidLost.com on that other device and you can remotely:

    Read SMS'es
    Read the latest SMS'es from your phone and send them to your email.
    Remote control alarm
    Have you ever misplaced your phone which was put on silent mode? Now you may sound the alarm on your phone from your PC!
    View on map
    Find the location of your phone on a map. With AndroidLost you can find your phone with GPS precision. Even if the phone is indoor you will get a nearby location by network accuracy.
    Send SMS'es from your PC
    You can send SMS'es directly from your phone by typing them on AndroidLost. All replies will still go to your phone.
    Lock the phone
    You can lock and unlock the phone from the web. If you forget your pincode you can simply overwrite it or remove it from the web.
    Wipe the phone
    Don't want your personal messages in the hands of anyone else? With AndroidLost you may wipe the entire phone so all SMS'es, contact and google setup is removed.
    Pop up messages on the phone
    Send a message to the friendly guy who have found your phone so you may let him know where to give it back.
    Forward your calls
    You can send keys to the dialer of your phone. That way you can forward your calls from your mobile to a nearby phone.
    No battery use
    AndroidLost will not use any battery since it does not poll any server to find out if it is lost. It uses the latest technology from google to send messages to the phone.
    No pre installation required
    You didn't install AndroidLost on your phone? No problem! You can push the AndroidLost app to your phone from google play and initiate the connection to googles servers by sending an SMS with the message 'androidlost register' to your phone.
    Read status
    Detect how much battery is left, display IMEI, SIM card ID and much more.
    SMS commands
    You can set up a phonenumber which can control you phone, i.e. start the alarm by sending an SMS to your phone.
    Erase SD card
    Click a button and your SD card will be erased! Very useful if you have some naughty pictures on your sd card.
    SIM card changed
    When the SIM card is changed an email will be sent to the owner of the phone.
    Hidden SMS
    When the phone receives an SMS it plays a sound and displays an icon in the notification bar. But if it starts with androidlost it will not play any sound and not display any notification.
    Call list
    A list of incomming and outgoing calls will be sent to you.
    AndroidLost can take pictures with the front facing camera in case the phone is stolen. Only for android 2.3.
    AndroidLost also works on tablets. The call functions will obviously fail if the tablet have no phone installed.
    Text to speech
    You can make your phone speak out load. Suppose you have lost it on a café then you can make the phone say: 'I am lost - please pick me up!'
    Multiple phones on the same account
    So you may control more that one phone from your account.
    Browse content
    You can browse the content on the phone directly from the webpage. So if you phone is stolen you can still download your holiday pictures or erase them remotely.

    Obviously you need to do that as soon as possible after you lost that device.

    Although the information provided above is great and useful if you want to track down your device, the priority should be to keep your sensitive information private. This includes access to your Gmail account and notifying the carrier so that the device can be disconnected and all network traffic stopped - time is essential and the longer the lost device sits with unchanged passwords the higher likely hood that someone will find it and could start poking around through your private accounts. Whatever else is on the device and accessible (sd card contents) can still be viewed.
