Don't need it don't want it
My note 3 is one of the more expensive phones and no way do I want a pre installed kill feature. I'll install one myself if I want it.
I would be interested to know how they would plan on implementing it, 5 minutes out of the box and my phones are unlocked and I have root access, usually flashing a new rom. I then remove or quarantine unwanted bloatware. I'm no tech genius and I'm not doing anything that is complicated, most people that graduated sandbox can figure it out.
I don't see any benefits to a law mandating kill switches. The idiot kid who wants to steal a phone because he wants one is going to be too stupid to realize their is a kill switch and steal it anyway. The smart thieves want your phone for parts, they don't care about kill switches. The smarter thieves that want your data know exactly how to get around these locks. And to top it off a remote entity good or bad can shut you down.
No thanks, if it becomes law I will be exploring ways to disable it on my own phone
