AFAIK it is only the China made Bird S288 handset that can be turned off via
ESMS (sms but codes can be picked out by the phone for special features,
read up on it, tis whicked).

Why do you want to know/do that? This is done by putting the IMEI-nr of the
phone on a "Black List"!

Incorrect. This cannot be done. Sheesh, you think if this was even possible
it wouldnt have been found and MAJORLY exploited by now? And even if it was
possible, and known about, you think itd be as simple as posting on a
newsgroup to find out how to wreak havok with a large proportion of mobile
phones? You need to *THINK* first. Don't get abusive, just turn your brain
on next time.

The phones, when reports stolen or lost, are blocked by the network, by
theyr unique serial number (IMEI number). The phone provides this number
when connecting, and if its on the so called "black list", the phone is
denied access, and hence, disabled.
