I rarely keep everything in my wallet and would cringe if that was lost. I can't imagine that the phone is any more secure, hackers will figure out a way to get in. On the other hand, it should be possible for a "lost" phone to be erased by the cell phone company (I am sure for a fee). That would be a nice option to have for security.

The risk of losing a phone may be the same of losing the wallet. Nonetheless, technology shall help us to minimize the impact if our phone is lost. Better off, it shall help us to re-locate it.
