Samsung Statement on Mobile Phone Theft

We understand that the New York Attorney General has sent letters to all of the major US wireless carriers regarding the kill switch we had proposed on the Galaxy Note 3. We believe some of the press reports on this issue have been unfair, as we were still making proposals to implement a specific technical solution. In fact, we have continued our discussions with each of the carriers to evaluate a different kill switch solution and as some have already stated publicly, they will support a free and secure kill switch application.

We have no doubt about the carriers' commitment to remove the aftermarket for stolen phones, as has been demonstrated by their many activities in this area already. We will continue to work with them and with the Secure Our Smartphones initiative to find an effective solution that addresses this critical issue.
