    Until I retired, a couple of years ago, I traveled to, almost, every state in the union building restaurants or retail stores. I had to have a cell phone to keep in contact with my office, clients and wife. Now that I'm retired, I don't go to far from home. Just to the store, range, visit close friends or to a movie or out to eat with my wife. As much as I'm against anyone tracking my where about by my phone or any other means, I would have no problem leaving it at home when I went out and checking messages, text or missed calls when I returned home.

    I'm sure some of us remember the good old days when all we had were pagers and pay phones.

    Yeah. That would be the last day I left the house with a cell phone or with it turned on. If I even kept it. The cell phone bill could buy a lot of ammo.

    I didn't watch the video (22 minutes long).
    What does turning location, and wifi off do?
    Does it help at all?

    As with most things, it depends. In this instance it is dependent on hardware and software configurations.

    Tracking my phone is one thing; you come to my house and try to enforce some sort of horseshit policy, you’re going to be trespassed. You come back, understand that my home is my Alamo.

    There are limits, even in an emergency, to governmental power. Delegating that power to some jack hole crusading do-gooder who never learned about the fourth, fifth, and sixth amendments is well outside the bounds of governmental power.

    I remember when pagers were new and consider very intrusive.
