Re: Recourse?

Or some hacker finds a way to SMS the kill command to millions of phones...

Apple has a way for the owner to remotely erase their iDevice, in the event it's lost or stolen. I think Google (android) has a similar mechanism.

We don't need ways to break the phone. We need the d***ed phone companies to not let anyone ever use it again.

There already is a national database of stolen phones - if the person actually reports it stolen. Many don't. And the carriers have to refuse to allow the reported stolen phone on their network. It seems it isn't in their best interests to religiously enforce that.
