JUST TAKE OUT THE SIM CARD NIGGA

If it has a radio and connects to a tower, it's tracking you

phones literally always track you by tower triangulation, it's how networks avoid spewing everyone's calls over every tower all the time
>>
You realize you can still be tracked accurately via triangulation, right?
>>
>>65565675
>>65565726
If you wanted to be clever about it, you can switch IMEIs between towers, making triangulation near impossible.
>>
>>65565315
As multiple anons have helpfully pointed out, anything that connects to a cell tower is easily traceable. If you actually give a shit about surveillance, you should avoid letting calls get traced to the phone you're using to make them. VoIP over Tor is probably the best idea at the moment.
>>
I'd use it if I could make it a SAT phone, for the sole purpose of contacting people on camping trips off the grid.

Are we at the point where the only way to not be tracked is to not have a phone?

Phone tower tracking is okay with me. I just hate all the tracking garbage that is on the phone.

No thanks, I'd rather be tracked.

>>65566256
Oh no, that point was more than a decade ago now.
Now they can just surveil you through other people"s phones, the internet of things, near by children"s toys, etc.

Just fucking leave your phone at home when you don't really need it with you. 20 years ago even the most developed societies functioned without everyone permanently carrying a phone.
>>
>>65565350
The phone still communicates with towers without a SIM card. The SIM card is just for authentication.
>>
>>65567196

but that was 20 years ago

there's nothing wrong with botnets tho
>>
>>65565350

>>
>>65567295
>The SIM card is just for authentication
Can't towers also see your IMEI number? And so in a scenario where you take out the SIM, they already know your IMEI and from that they can basically track you?

Is removing the battery truly a safe bet?
>>
>having a phone
>>
>>65567597
It's not a bad idea, but what will I do between classes and shit?
>>
Okay so if I need a phone everyday is there a /g/ approved phone that I can hardware hack to remove the majority of tracking. I'm trying to find a good balance here.

Holy shit, I just remembered that in the EU, an onboard crash notifier (that uses cell towers) is now mandatory on all new cars. What it does is if the airbags go off (e.g. crash) it automatically sends a message to 112 (911 equivalent) with your position and shit, so they can send you an ambulance faster.

This is what they tell you. In reality, now anywhere you go you'll be tracked.
