In the past 2 weeks I have heard 3 complaints about people loosing cell phones. In 2 out of the 3 complaints people themselves are responsible for the loss. In the 3rd case it was a robbery. But in all the 3 cases, the people want thier phone to be useless to the person who is currently having it. I am told that there is a special number which can lock the mobile and it becomes useless. The service provider can somehow do it. I am not clear about this logic and I belive that the sim card will be thrown out as soon as one finds a cell phone. When there is no SIM card then, how can any service provider reach the phone to disable it?
I do not face such problems as I don't carry a cell phone.
