No tracking. No Contact Tracing. No Sentinel Surveillance.

When asked...the answer is:

"I don't use those things I am old fashioned..."

"though, I have a phone and computer at home"

I still use a landline, and have no cellphone.
All good here, I don't believe in replacing what isn't broken, and landlines still work fine.

I won't be surprised if there is a new round of "Obama phones" at some point in the near future. They definitely want everyone carrying a tracking device with them.

Can you still get traditional landlines for your home? I assume they're all digital now and transfer over Voip.

My 'smartphone' is ancient and has a battery.

I'd just as soon give it up and use a flip phone. I could dial a number by feel and one didn't have to look at the blasted thing.

And I only get my news on a pc. It's shocking how different the news is that one gets on a phone.

Hey op, i do not need to download the ap or turn bluetooth on

Because of this your idea of contact tracing is flawed

The phones cannot be forced to download an app and then somehow prove you have had covid19

I haven't had a cell phone since I learned every call that has been made on any kind of phone since the 1970s has been recorded and is on record at the NSA.

A throwaway phone is the only way.

any phone regardless of Apps can be tracked if even you turn off wifi, bluetooth, gps etc..

You can turn the phone off..they can still track where it has been and where it is.

I have a landline phone (in addition to my TracFone, which I don't always carry with me).

Just yesterday I got a call from Publisher's Clearing House, telling me I've won a million dollars. All I have to do is send them $4,000 to cover taxes, and give them the routing number of my checking account to facilitate the transfer.

I've been saying it for YEARS!!! Take a hammer to your smartphone!!!!!

Dammit!!! These fucking phones are DESTROYING CIVILIZATION.

I've never had one. I will never have one.

It tracks you. It influences you. It's unhealthy. It interferes with normal human interactions. These smartphones are the most evil thing ever perpetrated on the population. I'm gratified to see more and more people waking up to this fact.

Get a landline with an answering machine. Worked just fine for decades before we had these fucking smartphones. Have a PC for internet. You don't need internet when you're out of the house... Learn how to read a map for Christ's sake... It's not that hard.

I have a flip phone I carry for road emergencies. It doesn't know who I am. I only carry it for longer trips where I'll be tearing across the desert. THAT is the appropriate use of portable communication technology. Could just as easily be a CB radio, too.

KILL your smartphone! Join me in being FREE. Only slaves carry phones!!!!

I have never owned a mobile phone anyway, in all these years, and have no intentions of either, why should I buy something I do not want, then have to pay monthly fees to use it, my house phone is good enough thanks. If I need a phone number for registering on a site etc I will ask a mate to lend me theirs. Try and follow me!

I have a land line .. and a smart phone too.. But the cell phone is for taking with me in the car if I have a road accident etc. so I can call the RAC. Never use it for messages etc. However when there is an electrical fault in my house wiring, or my server goes down for some reason the land line phone does not work . Somehow it is connected to my server- then I have to use the cell phone so it is useful in that way.

People you seem to be so slow on this board here.

Watch this and you will finally see how they will track and scan and know the whereabouts of everyone of this planet.

As soon as there will be 5G network will be up, they will know everything about you.

All those databases they took for years with faces, plates and your ID photos from the passports, driving licenses will be compared in real time with the faces and plates coming in feeds from millions of tiny cameras. Cameras, and microphones will be installed literally everywhere, in light pols in shops windows, on street advertisement boards, they will have drones flying around, now Musk's Starlink fleet of 5G satellites will "cover" even for remote and very rural areas....

Do you think you can escape???
