    To lock your lost phone, follow the below given procedure:
    • Open windowsphone.com in the web browser of your computer.
    • Now navigate to My Phone Drop down menu. You will find this option in the upper right corner of the screen.
    • Just use the same Microsoft account ID which you generally use to log in to your phone.
    • You will see Phone Menu., just click on "Find my Phone".
    • Now click on option which says "Lock" and follow the on-screen option instruction. If you haven't used any password in your Phone then set up new password.Remember this password because it will be used to unlock your phone, if it again comes to you.You can also type a custom message or your email address which will be displayed on your lost mobile so that someone who finds your device can return you by contacting you.

    Dear Friend!!
    If you have registered your windows phone on www.windowsphone.com, then you can easily lock your mobile from your home.
    you can also locate your mobile on this site.
    go to the website and login there.
    then click "my phone"
    Select "find my phone" and you can locate that on map as well as block all the contents to be used and also get the backup of your windows phone.

    Instructions


      • 1Call your service provider or access customer support on their website.


      • 2Answer their security questions to confirm you are the account holder.


      • 3Provide them with the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number if you have it. If not, they can find it, but it will take slightly longer.


      • 4They can now lock your handset so nobody can access your data.
