According to the MICAF, mobile phones are blocked as standard when reported stolen, however there is currently no accountability as far as blocking phones on networks is concerned.
The pledge is part of a charter launched by the MICAF and phone networks, intended to reduce mobile phone crime.
The MICAF hopes the pledge will persuade people against purchasing a stolen phone and said the support of the UK's mobile phone industry will demonstrate commitment to customer safety and help make phones less desirable to thieves.
