Holy shit; huge. Law enforcement have access to a system that can geolocate almost any phone in the US; the system doesn't really check if the officer has legal authority to do so. One officer allegedly used to spy on judges, other law enforcement

i'm not even joking—you get used to not carrying a phone, it is doable. obviously a lack of convenience, but if there is a good chance you could be impacted by cell dumps, ss7, these marketing services, whatever, dropping your phone is an increasingly valid approach

Personally prefer something that eliminates the chance to fuck up, but yep.

Problem is not SS7. There is need in mobile network to know the current location of handset to route incoming call. Out-of-band signaling is required for finding location for call routing. Few months ago someone in Industry explained you this fact, consult with them again.

Hence me recommending getting off the mobile network altogether, eh.

Using airplane mode and relying only on Wi-Fi is a lot more realistic but still isn't something most people are going to do. At least it's possible to have decent Wi-Fi privacy, although neither Android or iOS has associated MAC rand in their current stable releases (it's in P).

Definitely appreciate most people aren't going to do this, for sure.
