I think this feature should have been included on over S V, not just Verzion and U.S. Celluar handsets. What's the point in software lock Android Device Manager if the person that stole your phone can just wipe it and call it a day?

Any chance Sprint integrates it in a future update? I'm not sure if a feature like this can be ported over from the other variants.

You just call Sprint as it being stolen and they will lock it out.

Doesn't that just prevent the phone from being used on Sprint? They could still flash it to a carrier like Cricket. I'd prefer they have a brick.

I believe reporting a phone lost or stolen is the worst idea.

It will remove any connection you may have with the phone as well as any chance to locate it.

At least if the phone is still usable it can be traced.

Once it is blacklisted the thieves will be forced to auction it off on eBay.

I prefer reactivation lock. This way it cannot be flashed or wiped. A brick should I say.

This feature is really important and we should have it for our sprint device.
