Sure, until they lock the cell firmware to an equivalent of UEFI secure boot on intel chips. You can disable it, but it also disables the cell radio and you can't get services. If they're a bitch about it, they'd do like Samsung has with some versions of Knox, where a tripped counter permanently disables some features (like Samsung Pay).

He wants insular protectionism. What he doesn't realize is that it will also bring the negative - which is protectionism by other partners. We will be at a further disadvantage to selling our goods internationally as others impose tariffs to match ours. We'll get a fraction of our jobs back for those things that were previously produce overseas, but downward wage pressure will increase because everyone who sells internationally now has to lower their price to become competitive over the quid pro quo tarrifs and, domestically, we'll see 20-30% inflation on goods due to either tarrifs on foreign goods or more expensive, domestically produced alternatives. The net effect is that nearly everybody loses, but we gain a small fraction of jobs that nobody will want to do (how many people are clamoring for piece-work level electronics assembly positions anyway?)
