It strikes me that the lynchpin of the NSA operation seems to be smart phones. Smart phones are big money now these days, due to their increasing popularity and all the nice features that they have. But they are also expensive. Despite this drawback, or maybe because of it, smart phones are the cash cows for a lot of major companies. So i propose a simple op that would punch everyone in the nuts or worse, the wallet. We promote the use of cheaper, less advanced feature phones. There are several advantages to using them, one of which is that they tend to be cheaper. If the op works, then the major companies will complain about the NSA costing them business and money, and this would hopefully slow down or kill the program. However, i am not to familiar with non-smart phones, despite owning one. Hence why i put this thread in the think tank. Anyone have any thoughts or ideas on how to make this op happen and be effective, anyone have any experience with how the older phones operate? Can they be tracked. So far, i have not found any information on the internet on the capabilities that the nsa has on tracking and monitoring older phones, but i am not too familiar with the technical side of cell phones to know what to look for.
