Locked WinMo devices optionally display a message (e.g. for
contact/reward details), in addition to the keypad for unlocking the
phone, when switched on or woken up. This would allow return of the
phone whether it was stolen or simply lost.

Bricking the phone won't get it back, but having the above, plus
having the phone report its location regularly, would seem to maximise
chances of recovery.
