It isnt going to work. No matter how much effort engineers put into security / theft prevention, the criminal mind is far too flexible and clever. We live in a day of copy protection and yet see how much pirated software and literature is around.
Its like anti porno programs too.

Dilbert: "YES! Ive finally created a program that will prevent yound boys from viewing smut and vulgarity on the internet, im going to be RICH!"
Dogbert: "So you intend to pit your intelligence against the collective sex drive of every teenage boy in the world?"
Dilbert: "......."

Phones will get stolen no matter how much you try to stop it. Even if they are stolen only to be later discarded as useless junk. The trick is to stop using copy protections, theft preventions and other things that make people's lives a misery, and just make people look after their own gear.
