      Agreed! I seriously feel like I’m the only who sees this particular angle.

    What they could do is blacklist the MAC address or IMEI of the device for getting onto a mobile network, most network already do this and declare a phone to have a “”Bad ESN”. Many learned the hard way about this buying phones off Ebay, Craigslist or, the friend of a friends who is looking to sell their old phone. It would be nice if carriers would encourage thier subscribers to report phones lost or stolen more often but then again these are the same people that phone phone manufacturers to exclusivity deals, load our phones with bloat, and then dictate on how to use them. Then again politicians may want to look back into the PSA, lovely lil annoyances that reminded ppl about things like smoking is bad, i would suggest one like dont leave your phone out unattended, or learn to secure your phone dont know how then be nice to a geek and find out how. Now i could go on but will digress and digest all this while awaiting the next big scare.
