I think more along the lines of:

On startup a process runs, if it recognises the sim it shuts down, if it
doesn't recognise the sim it continues in the background until an ip
connection is established and it takes the data from current sim and
uploads it $somewhere, or if that takes too long, takes the phone number
from current sim and smses that to a nominated phone number.

Hello, Police? Yea, the person who has my stolen phone has this phone
number: xxxxxx and is located here: yyyyy could you please get it back 
for me?
