It's the same as a lost or stolen GSM phone.  You can have your provider 
block the IMEI from registering.  You can still use that phone on 
another provider but not with the provider that blocked it.  I would not 
put the idea of blocking foreign IMEI  aside as a carrier could this 
under the guise of "ensuring network integrity."
