No, the SIM card is registered to you electronically. Howerever they can access your private info unless it is password protected, and even that can be fairly easily broken.

Retrieve my contacts from a stolen iphone


If you have backed up your iPhone data with iTunes, you can directly extract and recover iPhone contacts from backup without your iPhone. What you need is a third-party tool to extract data from iTunes.
I have ever tried to export contacts and sms messages from iTunes with a free software, Free Jihosoft iTunes Backup Extractor, which helps a lot to extract data from iPhone backup.
Steps to extract data from iPhone backup
1. Download and launch iPhone Backup Extractor and select the backup file you need extract data from.
2. Select "Contacts", then click Next to preview and check the scanned files, then click "Recover" to extract contacts from iPhone backup

Tip

Tracking a stolen Apple iPhone / iPad


Locate your lost or stolen iPhone or iPad on a map.<br /><br />If you lose your iPhone or iPad, MobileMe can help you find it with Find My iPhone. Just enable Find My iPhone in the MobileMe settings on your iPhone or iPad.* Then sign in to me.com from any computer or using the Find My iPhone app on another iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to display its approximate location on a full-screen map<br /><br />Display a message or play a sound to help you find it.<br /><br />Say you've just used the Find My iPhone feature, and it turns out you left your iPhone or iPad at the doctor's office. Not to worry. You can write a message that will be displayed on your iPhone or iPad. Something like, "Oops, left my iPhone behind. Please call me at 408-999-9999." Your message appears on the screen, even if it's locked. And if the map shows you that your iPhone or iPad is nearby - say, at home under a pile of laundry - yet you still can't find it, you can tell MobileMe to play a sound that overrides the ringer volume or silent setting on your device.<br /><br />Set a passcode lock remotely.<br /><br />Once you realize you haven't simply misplaced your iPhone or iPad at home, you may want to protect its contents until it's safely back in your hands. Sign in to your MobileMe account and remotely set a four-digit passcode lock to prevent people from using your iPhone or iPad, accessing your personal information, or tampering with your settings.<br /><br />Protect your privacy with Remote Wipe.<br /><br />Addresses, phone numbers, email, photos. Your iPhone or iPad contains important and personal information - information you probably don't want in the hands of a stranger. So if you lose your iPhone or iPad and displaying a message on it hasn't resulted in its safe return, you can initiate a remote wipe to restore it to the factory settings.* If you eventually find your iPhone or iPad, you can restore your email, contacts, calendars, and bookmarks by enabling your MobileMe account on your device. Or connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer and use iTunes to restore the data from your most recent backup.<br /><br />Find My iPhone app.<br /><br />Because the unexpected happens in the most unexpected places, the Find My iPhone app can help you locate your missing iPhone or iPad even when you don't have access to a computer. It's free on the App Store and available to anyone. So if you misplace your device, download the Find My iPhone app on a friend's iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and sign in to your MobileMe account to access all the Find My iPhone features on the spot.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.itunes.com/apps/mobilemefind">http://www.itunes.com/apps/mobilemefind</a>

How do I prevent Tenorshare iphone data recovery from crashing every time I try to connect my iPhone?


Hello, firend. iPhone Data Recovery for iPhone 4S is leww likely to crash and DFU mode is not needed. And the bug-fixed version is better than the previous. If it crashes really badly, you can apply for an exchange from Tenorshare.

How can i change the ringing tone of my iphone? can i get music from it's ipod?


You can use the ringtones stored in Settings > Sounds > Ringtones. Otherwise, you can purchase custom ringtones from the iTunes Store application. You can also try using 3rd party applications that are named ringtone makers and try to use music in your iPod application. You cannot set songs in iPod as ringtones directly.

Your dock connector needs to be replaced. Tthere are third party iPod repair services, that will fix it for cheap.
