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.

doesn't dim the lights when you turn it on.
