    Wow, that's a good steal! Haha, just kidding, but that's a little spree - two in a row if it was the same two guys. They will catch them if they try and register any of the products, although they will probably try to pawn them instead...

    one part missing in the web version of the article was that they got 10 grand worth of stuff.

    Not trying to be overly pedantic, but burglary and robbery are totally and completely different.

    Just sayin'…

    Technically those thieves won't be stealing from Apple,
    as soon as they file a insurance claim.

    I'd imagine they'll be resold on fleabay....

    I'd like to see Apple & AT&T put a block on those IEMI numbers... LOL :D

    regardless of it being illegal or legal..
    isn't it possible to reprogram the IEMI on a iPhone?

    Yes it it. I'm just thinking of all those iPhone owners that tried reporting their iPhones as stolen and AT&T and Apple stated that they could not do anything about blocking the IMEI numbers or disabling the iPhones.

    Here's KCBS Radio's podcast:
