Take the battery out or keep them in one of those foil potato chip bags until you plan to use it.

“Take the battery out or keep them in one of those foil potato chip bags until you plan to use it.”

Hadn't thought of that - thanks for your suggestion. If tyranny sets in worse than it is, use a potato chip bag as home for cell phone. Note to self: Store some “used” potato chip smaller bags.

Someone will probably develop a nice looking mobile case that effectively blocks gps and rf until use.

Removing the battery is good. Placing the phone in any kind of Faraday Cage is bad, the phone will continue to search for cell-towers and will probably up the transmit power when it isn't hearing anything. This will drain the battery much faster than outside the cage and when you want to use the phone the battery will be dead. Your mileage probably won't vary.
