Washington DC sets up "bricking" to counter street cell phone thefts


Television station WJLA is reporting that Washington DC has put in a “bricking” plan to disable stolen cell and smart phones. 


The “bricking” means that once the phone is reported, the SIM card or phone can never be reused.  However thieves are slow to realize that the stolen phones are quickly becoming worthless. 

There have been problems with theft in residential areas of the city and on the Metro, especially near exit doors of cars.  

The DC government and Metropolitan Police have set up a website for bricking, here
