So this is actually happening lol. I guess iPhone theft is pretty bad in NY. Well at least with iOS 7 users have a way to turn their iPhones completely useless(through the find my iphone app). Basically this remote lock will disable your iPhone in a way that you will only be able to re-activate it with your Apple ID. Not even DFU mode can get around this. It is the most effective attempt so far by a manufacturer to avoid smartphone theft. So ya, upgrade to iOS7 if you want to have this cool feature available.
