I've have considered this with most phones these days. My phone has done some weird things in the past and I have a windows phone.
My question is, how can they monitor all the phones they want when there are prolly 300 million+ phones in the U.S alone?
There is indeed plenty of reason to fear what is happening, but there is always a way around it. For instance, look at these terrorist organizations. With all of our listening technologies, spyware, satellites, and attack drones, these terror cells still manage to stay under the radar and pass messages. This is a world that we will all live and die in so we'd better start getting used to it. There's nothing to be done at this point. Even if governments fell, the technology would still be out there for use by some other rising faction.
Rand Paul told some acquaintances of mine some time ago that you could be spied on through your smart phone even if it were turned off.
Chalk another one up, I guess.
