    My phone was stolen today, long story short, it's gone for good. I've deactivated it but I don't want them able to use my google account if they swap to another sim or use it on wifi, is there anyway I can stop this? Is changing my password gonna stop the phone? Please help!

    Sorry to hear about your phone. Had you enabled its internal tracker ? that could help you to find your phone.
    Just change your google mail password, nobody will be able to use your gmail account... rest assured.

    When changing sim's im pretty sure you get a popup message to re-enter the gmail password.
    Thats what i heard from people, who buy sim-cards from usa/uk to use as a secondary sim to access the paid Android Marked

    Yes, every time I swap SIM in any Android phone I must enter the password again.

    However, you can still access Gmail already cached on the phone - and contacts etc.

    Did you use the security functions on the Galaxy S? You can remote wipe, or even trace the phone.
