Stripping down the phone is too much work. If the IMEI is tamper proof then it will show up at some point. There is a difference here with iphone compared to Android. Apple's service as i understand it allows to track the phone without the user even setting it up. My cousin lost the phone before it was unboxed. The phone was delivererd to her office and it was pinched before she even got hold of it.It works but gangs are already aware of great markets like ghaffar, chor bazaar, nehru place where phones are stripped down for parts since iPhone IMEI is tamper proof. Did you not read any articles I posted in this thread?
With android unless you set it up google won't let you track it. And a simple reset will disable tracking of that phone for the account it was setup on. Not so with Apple.
