Good, now we also need to stop the SMS spamming - it has become an epidemic and it is largely donw by those with prepaid phones. Maybe update the donotcall.gov website to become the donotcontact.gov website.

Carrier should aslo be aware that a lot lost and stolen reported is false by user. I see quite a few buy insurance for the phone then call the carrier as lost or stolen, then turn around sell it to someone else.
