    Very handy release! great job! but....

    I have a question that I just don't understand, maybe someone can answer this for me. Why can AT&T not keep track of your IMEI on your phone on file, and if you lose your phone, or it is "stolen", and the "theft" uses the new phone, why can't the IMEI number be sent to AT&T based off the phone card/SIM being used, so if that phone's IMEI had been reported stolen, we would know who has the phone?

    I do realize this could be abused, and you could sell a phone to someone, then report it "stolen", but in reality, anything can be abused....just a thought.

    Does anyone know why this can't be done?

    They do keep it onfile, its complicated but it requires local police intervention. It is a very tangled mess of leagl jargon. The FCC requires all IMEI's to be retained for tracking purposes which have nothing to do with keeping your equipment safe. More about FBI tracking incase you decided to make a threat on someone / something. Similar to how your Serial number from your cable modem is tracked at your Cable operator but even if it was stolen it wouldnt stop somone from adding it to another account as long as your account is no longer active.
