I know in South Africa the cell phone companies were able to catch a killer by triangulating his position EVEN when his cell phone was off. That was one case when this technology was actually put to good use.
However, it also makes one wonder, when can this be used against you for no real reason at all

Some companies are beginning to mandate that cell phones are forbidden in their offices. Just like in the movie "The Dark Knight".

The reality I suspect is that they have been able to do this all along!

Only if they have access to your phone and install the trojan software on it first.
If ordered to do so, mobile telephone operators can also tap any calls, but more significantly they can also remotely install a piece of software on to any handset, without the owner's knowledge, which will activate the microphone even when its owner is not making a call, giving security services the perfect bugging device.

...its kind of disgusting how Big Brother or another can listen to conversations when my phone is OFF!

Sort of makes you wonder why they suddenly start transmitting for no reason also (leave it near a stereo system). Someone told me "it's changing towers", but I don't see the need when the phone is just sitting there not moving.
