2. how do i recover photos, notes, calendar, music, etc?

3. Is it possible to delete everything that is on the mobile?

Thanks.

All of those items are pretty much what the MobileMe / FindmyPhone app do.
If you do not have it installed then you do not have much hope.

The first thing to do is to ring it.   I'll assume you have done this.
If it is not ringing - just going straight to voice mail then it has probably already been wiped and sold.

(Sorry for the bad news)

After this - call your mobile phone company and have the sim turned off to stop them making calls.

For the other items... sorry... Nothing you can do other than put up posters / place advert in local forum where you think you might have lost it.

go to http://www.me.com on your computer.

Log in to your mobileme account.

Go to Find my iphone.

If your iphone is subscribed to mobileme, and location services are turned on on the iPhone, it should find it.

You can also "wipe" the iPhone clean of all information, or lock it (so that a password is required to access your information) from mobileme.  The "find my iphone" app does NOT need to be installed on the phone for any of this to work....the phone just has to be logged in to mobileme.

If you choose to "wipe" the phone, then you can no longer use mobileme to locate it.
