 My Galaxy buds 2 pro were stolen. I can see where they are located so I was wondering can they be reset to pair on someone else's phone? And or is it possible to shut down the buds to where it can't be used by anyone? Please advise.

Yes, they can easily be reconnected to someone else's phone but still keep your info built into them. There is a way they can factory reset them, I'm pretty sure, making it to where you can no longer track them.

Unfortunately, you cannot lock them down and make them unusable. Contact the authorities and tell them what's going on, and that you can track the buds and they were stolen.

Thanks for your input. I wish samsung had this feature within the ear buds.
