Technically, the airwaves belong to the government. Companies have to get a license from the FCC to transmit over the government airwaves. The SCOTUS has ruled that what is on your phone, in the memory, is yours and protected under the 4th Amendment, however, once you put information or your voice in the air, it's different.
Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.
So, basically, the point of this is that if you do something on your phone, it is not private.
Or online, for that matter.

These fake towers, known as “interceptors,” were discovered in July by users of the CryptoPhone500, one of the ultra-secure cell phones released after Edward Snowden’s leaks about NSA snooping. The phone is essentially a Samsung Galaxy S3 customized with high-level encryption that costs around $3,500. While driving around the country, CryptoPhone users plotted on a map every time they connected to a nameless tower (standard towers run by wireless service providers like Verizon usually have names) and received an alert that the device had turned off their phone’s encryption (allowing their messages to be read).

Yes we're sheep and we love our gadgets too much to give them up so we tolerate everything we say, type, or do on these devices as well as turn on GPS so our government knows where we go and how often, to be a normal part of life. Not only do we tolerate it, we have already accepted it. We're already in an Orwellian world - most just haven't realized it yet.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
