And yes bricking is generally a term having to do with messing up rooting rendering the phone a paperweight basically....which after a TOS a paperweight is basically all it would be to ST as it won't be activated again.
But just because you can't use a phone with ST doesn't mean it's bricked. I'm not sure what "after a TOS" means but how can ST know you're using the same phone? I don't remember them asking for any information from my phone.
