Can thief use my stolen 3D?

So my 3D was stolen last night. I figured I'm not getting it back so I did a wipe. Does anyone know if the person who stole the phone can still make phone calls and purchases via the android market before my replacement is shipped and that phone is deactivated?

Can thief use my stolen 3D?

If you ordered replacement through Asurion due to lost/stolen- they put the device on a blacklist of serial numbers that cannot be activated.  Therefore your phone can not be used in any way.  If you wiped it, then your gmail address is not on it either and so they cannot buy apps even on wifi - they would need your gmail address & password...so I think your phone is locked down and completely unusable.  However, you can feel free to chat with us or call us and we'll make sure it has the lost/stolen flag on the device as well.  Sorry it got stolen!

Thank you

If you have other phones on your account, you can sign up for Sprint Family Locator.  If the phone is powered on and has the GPS radio active, SFL maybe able to locate it for you.
