The author must be using autocomplete-the “cord” she is referring to is not the “chord” that has anything to do with music...

I’m almost paranoid about keeping my phone close and available only to me-it is inside an Otterbox which is inside a case clipped to my waistband or belt-the gps is turned off unless I need to let the contractor I work with know my whereabouts, a password is needed to unlock it, and it never leaves my person unless I’m at home. I don’t use any apps that request my location, and I don’t use the phone to go on the internet-and even at that. if someone wanted to track me using my cell signal, I’m sure they could...

So, you're thinkin' no keyboard, guitar, banjo? I did grab a chord or two the other night and will again tomorrow night too. If I remember to bring my cord to plug into an amplifier. 👹🎤🎸🎼

In my very rural and hilly area there is no cell service even though all the cell-phone providers claim there is one hundred percent coverage in the state.

I used to think that was a problem—but now I am beginning to think that is a good thing.

I guess I need to start showing up at town meetings to heckle anyone who tries to put in more cell towers. :-)

” I don’t use the phone to go on the internet-”

That is 90% of my use!

Your phone location is tracked even if the GPS is “turned off”. As long as your phone is on, and connected to a network, the phone location is tracked.

“Turning off” GPS only means that your apps cannot get the GPS data, and it is not transmitted to other private parties, generally.

It will almost certainly still be available in the meta-data the government records.
