My understanding is they all support reset protection since Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2.
You need to be using a MS account on your phone to activate it.
"The feature is available only in the US, and only for new Lumia devices that have shipped with OS version 8.10.15127.138 or later." - yes, hence my question in the opening post. Also my googlesauce isn't proving to be very fruitful.
Does anyone here Down Under own one of the ~$200 devices that has this function?
I have a Lumia 950 and just used the Reset Protection Status tool to check whether it was activated on my device. It is not and I do not have the option to turn it on. I suppose this in one of the features available if you select your region as USA when you set the phone up. Cheers Microsoft.
Just grab a cheap iPhone that still runs the latest version of Apples iOS platform - sorted ;)
how could you suggest iOS? ... wait, we are talking about windows phone here anyway... :/ worst of two evils?

Just because of that one thing ? Harsh :D
Ive never had an issue with anyone trying to reset my phone, and if they did, not going to achieve anything, it gets backed up regularly and syncs everything to OneDrive. Yes, be annoying, but not end of the world. Kids havent found out how to reset it yet :D
