I lost my dead phone approximately 12 hours ago and in the last hour the device name on Android Device Manager changed from Nexus 5 to Unnamed Device. Is that something to worry about? I had recently changed passwords and suspended the device. Is it just not picking up the phone because it's suspended?

Hi Caleb,

Unfortunately it is something to worry about... it seems like the person who "found" your phone registered it to their own account. I would definitely list it as stolen, at least it will become useless in Canada. So sorry about this... :(

Well that sucks. Thanks for the info. I called Koodo and they were actually nice enough to give me a credit on my account for the unfortunate loss of my phone. That actually made me feel a lot better about this lame situation. Thanks Koodo! :)
