That's very unfortunate! It's annoying to have stuff stolen and be forced to spend time on replacements and insurance.
With a WiFi hotspot your situation would have been a bit easier I think. It's a separate device, with the size of a credit card, just a bit thicker. It fits in any inside pocket of a jacket. That's were I kept mine, so really hard to reach for pickpockets.
If your phone gets stolen you still have the hotspot. Any replacement phone will be able to access the internet immediately as it's the same as connecting to any other WiFi. In fact, multiple people can connect to it, so that keeps the costs down while still enjoying unlimited data.
Of course you will no longer be able to call if the replacement phone has no SIM card, but calls via WhatsApp or Skype would work.
