Did you know that "silent" text messages can be used to track your whereabouts?

Only way to shut down the tracking is to pull the battery. Oh, can't pull the battery? Too bad, so sad... Prepare to be tracked. Resistance is futile.

Not the same. Plenty of people in the past have been wire tapped of their conversations even with the phone "off".

Yep, never really believed it was a design choice for aesthetics. Just as many mobile users also prefer utility, plus there's accessories to make money off of.
Maybe I'm just a conspiracy nut, but to me it was always about taking power away from the user and putting it in the hands of someone else.

This is not new. We all know wether your phone is off you can be tracked
