It the responsibility of the phone vendor to ensure that their physical hardware is not capable of doing anything it should not. For example, the phone should be incapable of transmitting at a power level higher than that authorized by relevant government standards.
Or burn the bit of software that it controls onto a ROM, they should be doing that anyway--binary only is not enough to stop dedicated crackers.
