For sure. But there are two approaches; this one assumes the bad guy 
won't change (or just remove) the SIM card, which is possible but not 
likely. The other one (which I thought of ages ago but which Michele 
Renda just explained again quite well) still works if the BG changes the 
SIM, as long as there's a SIM card in place (or if you have a FreeRunner 
if you're in WiFi coverage).

But of course neither will work if the bad guy is tech-savvy enough to 
reload the flash. And we won't say any more because those guys know how 
to use Google!
