Exactly, most people say "I have nothing important" on their phone.

then they lose:
-years of pictures (some could show where you live, you in a compromising position,etc).

-txt messages of a personal nature maybe even addresses, passwords, alarm codes, etc

-sync'd browser websites that may automatically log in. (financial, amazon, extra)

- Access to your social media accounts that could be used to scam your friends (see articles we're people ask for money because their stuck somewhere)

-Access to ALL your contacts information, again can be used for (scam) OR maybe EVEN just wiped out.

- A list of which financial institutes you use (bookmarks), with information of family friends that could make it easier for identity theft.

And THAT's just what I can think of off the top of my head.
