JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Did you know that in most major cities, cell phone theft is now the number one crime?

There has been a rise in crime in a lot of big cities caused solely by
people stealing iPhones and other smart phones from people. Sadly some of the criminals are violent when they steal your phone. 

There was an incident
recently when a child was roughed up by a guy who was stealing the phone the child had. It was the parent's phone obviously.

The iPhone software is going to have a kill switch. It's going to make crime not pay, because someone will steal an iPhone and they won't be able to do anything with it.

This is going to be great
to stop crime in its tracks. Now it's time for producers of Android phones to follow Apple and shut down the criminals.
