AT&T to Block Stolen Devices Starting Next Week
AT&T is now going to be best friends with customers that lose their phones.
AT&T is going to launch a new service that will block stolen devices that are reported. It will allow customers who either lost or got their devices stolen to block important data, SMS and voice all with one call to AT&T.
A block list of stolen phones and tablets are going to be created. If the phone or tablet is on the list, it will not be able to access AT&T’s network and the line will be automatically suspended.
Furthermore, any phone or tabet can be added to the list. Thieves who try to use the service will have the service suspended on touch. The whole point is, they will become less of a target for thieves.
You think this is a good idea?
