NOT asking how to commit fraud, but how does SafeWare know that your phone is stolen?

    Couldn't you just say "My iPhone was stolen"? How can they enforce this?

    They probably make you file a police report with the serial number listed as stolen.

    Anyone who has that connected to their plan might actually get caught, simply because the serial number is on a blacklist and cannot be changed.

    You'd obviously need proof it was stolen (police report).

    I'm pretty sure your serial/IMEI number will be blacklisted with AT&T and anyone that tries to activate it will fail. They will also report it to the police.
