Can my provider permanently disable my phone.


My cell phone was stolen and my service provider told me they would disable the phone so it could not be used again. I see ads for "unlocking" or "unblocking" cell phone all the time. Is there someone here knowledgable about cell phones that could tell me if Verizon can really permanently disable my old phone? If that is possible, why would someone steal it? Thanks for your help,
