+ - An easy way to curb smart-phone thieves->

Submitted by xx_chris
xx_chris (524347) writes "Cell carriers can and do brick jail broken cell phones but they won't brick stolen cell phones. Except in Australia. The Australians apparently have been doing this for 10 years and it reduces violent crime since the thieves know they won't be able to sell the stolen phone. The FA points out that cell carriers have a financial disincentive to do this since a stolen phone means another sale."
