Blocking Mobiles

Telstra (and the other carriers) are finally going to block stolen mobile phones. That press release is pure propaganda. Here’s an SMH article on it. Telstra attempts to palm off the significance phone blocking has on decreasing mobile theft. I don’t think it will completely stop theft, but people buying second hand phones in future are going to want to test them out first before forking over the cash for them now. Anyhow, it would stem casual theft of mobiles quite a bit I’d imagine.
