David Pogue's lost iPhone

It seems that NYTimes columnist David Pogue lost his iPhone, and mother of all surprises, managed to get it back. Here is the account straight from the horse's mouth.

After reading that, I was left wondering what would have happened if it were anywhere in any of the (almost all) Asian countries. The person who managed to pick David's pocket, would have actually walked over to the nearest "phone service centre", where a friendly guy would have rooted out the phone, changed the baseband and other software, and made sure it would not be tracked by any kind of online tools. That, ladies and gentlemen, is what a smart thief would do.

I find it amusing that the thief did not have the brains to go the extra distance !
