I'm really annoyed that the latest phones don't allow you to disable "Presidential Alerts." I don't want Big Brother in my phone, thank you very much.

(Let's see how long it takes before this gets abused.)

They're already tracking ever step you take with your phone, every number you call, every site you access and every text message you send. Why are you worried about receiving notifications of stuffs?

If this is really a problem, you'll be picked up and taken to a re-indoctrination center. Don't bother broadcasting your location. They know where you are.

What wizard said... GPS was added to every phone to track you... you know for your safety. Everything you have
every done on the inernet or phone has been stored. If the alert system wants to tell you your president loves you
why does that upset you? Google is doing more evil with your info than this thing.

But I can't do much about all that unless I forego using a cell phone.

Alerts are annoying.

Eh. So they track me going to/from work every day.
I'll go riding, and the phone's nothing more than a paperweight as soon
as I get out of the city. Good luck finding me in the forest. If I
really don't want to be tracked, teh phone will stay out there.

Better yet, don't bring the phone with you.

There goes my trust into organized crime down the drain....

  1. I would at least have thought that criminals know about criminal stuff to do with mobile phones. Don't they pay hackers to hack the government hackers?! My paranoia alone has told me for the last 15 years that "roving bugs" is a total likely scenario and I have nothing criminal going on to even really start worrying.
  2. I would have expected them to use some top notch hitech devices like government members or secret services use them. Our chancelor and alledgedly your president too are said to having "unbuggable" mobile phones.

What's up with these gangster's nowadays?!

Perhaps there are just some stupid criminals out there.  Or, perhaps, the criminals that "get caught" via cell phone wiretapping are patsies set up by the real criminals, who either don't carry phones or carry "clean" phones.

It does make a case for using open source firmware, doesn't it?  :)

On the other hand, this could set us up for a whole new batch of unconstitutional pre-emptive legislation.  "Mr. Foobar has a physical toggle switch on his cell phone to turn off the power.  This proves that he is involved in organized crime."

Remember comrade, if you are not doing anything wrong you have everything to worry about.

Well, this is the Mobile Madness room.  Should we be talking about "ObamaPhones" ??   (I have a RomneyPhone -- I have a job, I got paid, I bought a phone with my own money.)

Because you paid for it it is a Romney phone?

It doesn't make it any politician's phone, it makes it YOUR phone. You support Romney so you support big government
controlling everything. You need to stop thinking like that.

Zooer, think he meant that the other way around.  It's Obama that supports big gov't controlling everything.  Therefore, if you buy your own phone with your own efforts, that's a Romney phone.  If Big Brother buys it for you and tells you with whom you can speak and what you can do with it, that would be an Obama Phone.

Actually it's a Romney Phone because it has a "muppet chainsaw massacre" app on it.

Okay, you win, a Romney phone is a government phone. I always knew republicans loved big government, wasteful spending and
restricting freedoms just as much as the democrats. They just love big government for different reasons.
