If you want to "jailbreak" it, a lot of things are possible. Youtube has videos that will show you how to do all kinds of things that will void any
warranty or insurance the phone has. If you're overly concerned with it. You may not want to use it. Some things will always be there, because they
are integral to its functionality.
Even if you rip the GPS out, the carriers still see which towers you connect to- and can triangulate your position within meters. (my phone can still
tell me roughly where I am with wifi and gps off. Scary stuff.)
Data transmission? Forget about it. There might be encrypted messaging systems you can look into, but chances are the carrier (and definitely the
goobers) could just remotely trigger an upload of the stored encryption keys to them.
Want to keep it from spying on you? Drop it into a crucible full of molten metal.
Second that lordcomac. Whatever you install on the Iphone, even firmware reflash, they're gonna get you - GPS, camera (which you can cover), mike,
fingerprint, retina scan, whatever they put in the #. Been cracked on most phones. Apple is worse than what we're operating.
