Is it pointless to steal a mobile phone?

I don't understand why people continue to steal mobile phones. Can't they be blocked? Or is there a way to salvage them?

If you are going to go to the lengths of stealing then you probably wouldn't mind extending the lengths of your illegal behavior to changing the IMEI so it's no longer blocked. :)

Or just sell it abroad where the UK block on the IMEI is irrelevant. Look on eBay at how many phones are "for buyers outside the UK only".

They're all stolen.

Good of ebay to allow that then. And good idea to promote phone theft by pointing out a sales vector ;)

If people want to break the law, good for them. I don't think the average phone thief (aka: waste of space smackhead who can't OD soon enough for the good of society and my tax contributions) really reads Mobot.
