In the recently concluded civil riots in UK a record number of iPhone equipments went missing from the stores. The looters snatched the iPhone devices from the people and looted the stores at will. And its impact was soon noticed on the local Craiglist too. The number of listings for iPhone almost grew exponentially. However, technology and law has outplayed the culprits this time round too. They will not be able to sell off theequipments as these would have become non-operational within 24 hours of reporting IMEI stealth.
The local authorities in fact worked day-in and night-out to ascertain that the stealth gets aptly reported. In fact technology has been smartened in a way that if a stolen iPhone is used by a person his location can be exactly traced by the investigating authorities. Therefore, there is no escape from the net.
The stolen iPhone equipments in UK are therefore worth nothing and it is much to the delight of users whoseequipments went missing in the deadly UK riots. Finally the unrest in UK is over and the authorities have got their act together. The iPhone equipment stealth is no longer a minor issue and hopefully the looters have learnt a lesson.
