Turning your phone off only keeps the phone in standby. You need to pull the batteries if you actually want it off. But they thought of that and made the batteries inaccessible.

“Turning your phone off only keeps the phone in standby”

By turning it off I mean powering it down. When my phone is “powered down” the battery holds its charge virtually forever which suggests the phone is doing nothing but monitoring the button on the side.

Do you think it’s in standby when powered down as I describe?

If so then you’d need to keep it in a metal box to shut it off from the world.

I still have a flip-phone (*GASP*) and every time I drop it - which is pretty much daily - the battery falls right out!

I’m pretty sure whoever is spying on me is having one hulluvatime figuring out what I’m up to. *SMIRK* :)

(Though, they can ALWAYS find me here at FR, if they really need me. The DU pukes spy on me here a LOT!)
