AT&T to Block Stolen Phones Starting This Week
Entirely kidding though, but still shocked it took them this long to implement this.
When the phone is SIM locked, you have to put that code in, before the phone can be useful to anyone. If you add pass code protecting your phone, it makes it all but useless to a would be their or person who happens to find a lost phone.
But the obstacle to this policy hasn't been at&t or any other carrier, the obstacle has been the FCC, which is why the story says that this is being done 'in cooperation with the FCC', in other words, the FCC has been lifting some of their regulations to allow this to happen.
so its just at@t slacking till enought people said something about it

Most other carriers have been doing this for quite a while.
AT&T recently caught heat for NOT doing this and that attention is what prompted them to FINALLY do this.
