That's not true... in order for something like that to be true, there would need to be a globally maintained black list, which there isn't. GSM providers all have local blacklisting (ie on their network only) but there is no global list, this is why so many stolen handsets end up in asia/africa. It is very possible for RIM to flag the PIN or IMEI number in case it is moved to a different carrier, but other than that there isn't much to be done.
