How will you detect the bluetooth "stolen name" if you don't have a phone anymore ?. Not all phones have bluetooth and not everybody uses it. Bluetooth enable phones don't look for devices indefinitely and bluetooth is not always on and being on all the time is considered a security hole. So i wonder how someone loosing or getting is Neo stolen can retrieve it via bluetooth without having to get a bluetooth phone or enabled device capable of reading the tag. 

The idea is great and should be kept but how don't see myself running to the closest cellphone dealer to get a 50$ bluetooth enable cellphone to pinpoint my 400$ Neo. Sounds illogical to me
