    Its not an option, its just something the operators can do,here they track phones even ones that are turned off for people that are kidnapped and that. Why do ya want to not be traced anyway?!?

    True but...

    You gotta look at the advantages:
    they can track you if you get kidnapped
    they can track if criminals brake into your house
    they can track where your phone is if it gets stolen

    the only disadvantage is invasion of privacy....

    As far as I know, its the law now (at least here in the US), that all mobile phones must have GPS on them. It's not an option, they must have them.

    So who exactly do you think is invading your privacy?

    Big Brother looking for you?

    It is for emergency use only, and very few people/organizations can access it.
