    So you would have no problem with the police kicking in your door, ransacking your house, and searching through your private papers?

    After all, you haven't done anything illegal.

    If you are going to give up part your 4th amendment rights, you might as well make it quick and give them up all at the same time.

    I don't mind it. If I don't want to be tracked, I will simply remove the battery from my cell phone. Let the "authoritahs" run around in circles, not knowing where in their ant farm I am.

    I thought removing the battery didn't make a difference, correct me if I'm wrong.

    Without the battery, it will never send a signal to a tower.

    As opposed to just turning the cell phone off? If the cellphone is merely turned off if can still be tracked?

    I'm willing to sacrifice some freedom for security, but this is a gargantuan undertaking that our Fed Govt will flub. What happened to good old intelligence operations?

    Believe it or not, if you turn your cell phone off, you can still be tracked. You must take the battery out.

    What's the big deal? As citizens we can track whoever had your cell phone in hand including yourself too just by entering their cell phone number at this website:

    Citizen is different than government.

    But even GPS tracking via citizen is still crossing the line, imho.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    This is the best they could come up with:


    And yet there's nothing to stop people from just following your car to see where you're going. There's no law against finding out "sensitive information".
    This is not the same. With cell phone tracking you will never know it's being done, and just as they can listen to your conversations by remotely accessing your cell microphone, you are unaware of it. People do believe that they are having a private conversation on the phone, why do you think wireless home phone security was a big deal some years ago. They add digital rolling codes and stuff.

    Total protection from eavesdropping, thanks to the invisible mobile phone | Voice activated recorders

    People do not expect to be followed around by the goverment in their daily lives. The govt's primary duty to maintain liberty, constraint it.
