US Carriers Team Up to Reduce the Value of Stolen Smart-phones
By Fred Salva

One of the biggest problems of the modern society is people and their smart-phones. Thanks to different contract offers people treat themselves with the high-end gadgets that cost almost a fortune at retailers. And this, my friend, is a tempting surprise for thieves. Did you know that, for example, in New York alone there were 26,000 stolen electronics in the first 10 months of 2011, and 81% of those cases were for cell phones. To improve the pessimistic situation US biggest wireless carriers teamed up with the Government and are going to create a massive database of all stolen phones, a big move towards preventing phone theft that has boomed recently. "New technologies create new risks," Federal Communications Commission Julius Genachowski said. "We wanted to find a way to reduce the value of stolen smartphones." Well, the idea is great cause bad guys won?t be able to use stolen smart-phone on the US territory. The only but ? this restriction looses its power in other countries.
