The next time you leave your cell phone in a cab or at a bar, you won't have to worry about thieves running up your bill. At least, you won't if you're an AT&T customer. A trusted source has told The Verge about AT&T's plans to launch a new service that will allow customers to block data, voice, and SMS service to stolen mobile devices while keeping their accounts intact. According to the source, "only the person who originated a block may request block removal."
