Quoting Nick Moffitt (nick at zork.net):

> Alas, this will do nothing to thwart tower triangulation techniques.

>>True.  I was aware of that.

>>If you don't want your cellular to communicate with towers, you need to
stop it from syncing to them, taking you off the grid, which is what is

Do the dumb phones sync even when switched off, or do you have to pull the SIM card?
