Its better to have siren when others touch the phone without permission and give high electric shock and fly back to you.
Dreaming of a device like in Mission Impossible, destroyed after a few seconds by it self with a special instruction.
As a person who lost more than 10 smartphones in the past due to theft inside packed public transports, I welcome this idea. It brings us peace & justice.

It should be the problems of Americans since politicsis finding its way into technology in America.
Democracy is becoming a joke! Really theyre communists hiding behind a fancy name! We the people dont have the final say!
Thats good but it would be a bad news for used mobile buyers..chance getting cheated is high

I think its a great idea to stop phone theft, prevent them from selling it online and buyers purchasing a stolen phone.

The kill switch is a very trendy feature it seams... UE wants to install this in every new car rather soon. One day WE will have such thing installed in our body. Way to go (down)!
LE: Ah, and forgot! Embedded SIM in every car too!
