Your iPhone is secretly tracking you.

GPS is a requirement in all cell phones now. If it works without wires, then you're tracked. You may not be able to use it to see where you are, and what faggy art-bar is next to you on a pretty little map, but it knows coordinates, and anyone that knows how to track lat./lon. will know where you are.

Locationd Blocker: Blocks All Location Records Stored On Your iPhone / iPad [Jailbreak Required]

 

For those who don’t like this information to be stored / for those who don’t like the device to keep track of your moves, you can install Locationd Blocker. One of my good friend @pushfix has developed a utility, which cleans all the information related to this tracking.

 

This blocks locationd from storing any information about cell location, wifi location, and Your past locations

 

You can still use GPS with full accuracy. WiFi only accuracy will be diminished since it’s not logging the location of Wi-Fi access points anymore.

 

Step 1: Jailbreak Your iOS Device

 

Step 2: Launch Cydia >> Manage >> Source >> Edit >> Add >> Type the following source >> Add Source

 

 http://cydia.pushfix.info/

 

Step 3: Once the Source is verified and updated, Tap on Done & Tap on the Added Source

 

Step 4: Now, Look for Locationd Blocker

 

Step 5: Select It, Tap on Install >> Tap on Confirm to complete the installation

^^^^

this is pretty accurate. even the most basic cellular device of any kind has a general sense of its location at all times. even with only voice services being used. cellular devices use an individual IMEI tag (or similiar ID for different networks) for handshaking on the network, much like a MAC address. When the device is turned on it transmits a "hello" to the network containing its individual ID and requests network access in the form of a handshake protocol. In order to do so it triangulates its position with regards to the nearest cell tower by way of signal strength. to say that the device knows its lat/longitude is slightly incorrect, what the device knows is the ID for the nearest cell tower, and the cell tower equipment logs which device ID's have accessed its network resources. that is true for the most basic voice communications.

 

for data communications, once a data session has been established a cellular device is indeed able to triangulate its exact coordinates down to a few hundred square feet. no matter what the carrrier or data services used.

 

regardless of an incorrect perception that your device is not storing your location data, the service provider still has a log of which towers were used for communication to and from a particular device, so your location can be tracked consistently as you move and your device 'hops' from tower to tower. ever notice how cell towers are generally next to major highways and roads? well to someone mapping your movement it will look just like mapquest as you hop towers while in transit.

Isn't this a feature you can enable on phones nowadays? So you have kids with cell phones you add this as a service and can keep track of their whereabouts. If i had a daughter this would probably set my mind at ease some. Would probably want to know if my kid was going down to 7 and John R every day too.

Assuming they know your phone number.

"they" gave you the number. of course they know it's you. You for all intents and purposes on any network, including prepay, are a number in a database, sorted by which cell phone tower your signal is coming off of, and then from there, further triangulation is done. fake names are cool and all, but don't ya think that if you're high up enough on the list to get tracked, they aren't gonna know your voice? it gives you a leg up for a little while, but unless you're particularly careless, you have the same chances on any phones. and besides you think the cops know that drug dealers buy burners? i'd say they're way more locked than anything else EASILY.

You fail to realize that you buy those phones and re-fill cards anonymously.

It's not about a fake name, there is no name involved.

The cashier at Target or Walmart sure as hell aint asking for your name.

The phone automatically comes with it's own sim card and phone number.

They don't know who buys the phone or the refill card. (assuming you don't pay with your fucking credit card)
