Most mobile phone thieves wouldn't have a clue how to uninstall it or do a hard reset, but they DO know enough to turn it off right away, and LEAVE it off until they've sold it on.
The buyer almost certainly WILL know what to do to disable such security measures. The only way to truly prevent it, is for the program to be in ROM, so it can't be disabled. You may as well just call your operator and get the IMEI disabled.
