You guys don't realize...

...how valuable this is.

As a former robbery detective, about three-quarters of all of my robbery investigations centered around a stolen smart phone and of those smart phones, probably ninety percent were AT&T iPhones.

If thieves knew that phones would be completely useless after a robbery I know most of our thugs wouldn't have stolen the phone. They'd probably go back to demanding the wallet and cash.

I've had victims beaten for their smartphone. Stabbed for their smartphone. Held at gun point for their smartphone. Finally, a system in the works to make em useless.

Granted we, as law enforcement, will have to adapt. But that is talk for another time and place.
