New phone will scream if it's stolen

Now if your mobile telephone is stolen, you can scream — and your phone can, too. A new service launched Monday is designed to deter mobile phone theft by equipping telephones with an ear-piercing scream.

The screaming won't stop unless the battery is removed. Even if the thief replaces the phone's SIM card, the handset will not work.

All customers' information is centrally stored, so contacts, ringtones, pictures, texts and other data can be retrieved when a new handset is purchased. The service costs about $18 a month.

The goal of the service is to make mobile phones useless to anyone but the rightful owner, said Mark Whiteman, the managing director of Remote XT.

"We'll see the market for stolen handsets stamped out once and for all," he said.

Haha, so do I. I was thinking the same thing "I can see some lawsuits".

I will take my chances as well.

This would have come in real handy when my phone got stolen in Mexico. I can just see that lady trying to make her 10 phone calls, send the texts, and taking pictures of herself only for the phone to start screaming. That would be hilarious. Not to mention useful down there, where chip changing happens very very frequently.

When we took a taxi in Afghanistan we told him where we wanted to go and he told us that we were lucky that it wasn't dark or else he wouldn't take us there because another taxi driver got killed over his cell phone. I just don't get it...
