I'm guessing you're from the UK...

In the US cell phone theft isn't a big problem at all due to the fact that our phones don't use SIMs and therefore are tied to a specific network.

Steal a phone, and the carrier will never activate it again - making it pretty much useless (aside from reselling the battery).

Not saying the technology is better, it just isn't a problem here :-)
