Do you ever worry that someone is tracking your movements via your cell phone? Most phones these days are able to be tracked by the phone company, should they choose to. However, this is something that generally takes a court order to do. So the majority of people don’t really worry about the possibility. However, if you’re convinced that “they” are watching you, then you might be interested in one of these SilentPockets from MIAmobi.
Coming in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials, these SilentPockets all perform one simple service. They block RF signals to any device contained within. That means if you tuck your phone away inside one, not only will your calls be missed, but there will be no way that your phone can be tracked. I’m content enough to simply put my phone in Airplane Mode if I want it to both be on, and reject calls. As for the possibility of still being tracked while my phone is off, I guess I don’t consider myself important enough to track down. If it’s a concern of yours, you’ll need to contact the company for pricing.
