Default Removing GPS chip from phone??

Can anyone post pictures on how to do this? I've heard you don't get much of a signal when you do it. But won't texts come through as soon as you do get a signal?

Maybe specifying what KIND of phone first would be helpful.

Ok this is from my trusted friend;

Works on most phones except nokio;

1. memove backplate
2. remove battery
3. remove back plastic shell ( probably requires a small torx or posi drive bit )
4. look for the piece that says gps, unplug it and smash it with a hammer
5. restart your phone but hold down 9 while you turn it on next time ( this step is CRUCIAL )

DONT ASK ME HOW I KNOW, THIS COULD BE HIGHLY ILLEGAL IF YOU ACTUALLY DO IT

When you take the battery out it's got 4 black chips with really small writing visible, another really small one. I would scan a picture but it's not working right now.

I don't think taking your own phone apart is illegal.

One chip says "Analog devices" and some random numbers and letters, and the others just have numbers and letters. So you don't think this phone has one? I thought all phones nowdays had them.

these people here are giving you bad or more like WRONG advice. The GPS is built into the phone and won't operate without it. e911 act. All these new phones use the aGPS from the cell towers even if the internal chip fails, or can't get a signal. So lets say hypothetically you do achieve the task of disabling the GPS in the phone, then the cell towers are already transmitting that data to the device and it is doing an 'area' calculation based on your relation to the cell towers the signal is bouncing off of.

I feel if you really wanted to get into this, you should get into reading on forums like gsmhosting.com and start with a decent phone that you can change the IMEI on and swap sims. Buy a few with cash at random places. Or a place like myworldphone.com sells bulk prepaid sims and at a fraction of retail.

There are better ways of doing what you want to do.

Don't have the cell phone on. And don't get caught committing crimes.

no. you can't do that. Only higher end phones have actual GPS hardware in them anyway.

Besides, cellphones can be tracked by cellular triangulation... the same hardware used to, you know, use it as a phone?

Therefore, the best solution is to kill yourself.

probably got carrierIQ on it so you're fucked anyway

http://www.macobserver.com/tmo/artic...sung_htc_more/
Quote:

Apple has been named in a new class action lawsuit being brought against several companies who have used the controversial CarrierIQ software, including four hardware makers—Apple, Samsung, HTC, and Motorola—and three U.S. carriers—T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T. The suit alleges an “unprecedented breach of trust” and violations of several federal laws.

According to a statement released by the law firms, the suit is a reaction to, “the unprecedented breach of the digital privacy rights of 150 million cell phone users.” Despite the noble wording, we should point out that CarrierIQ’s own bragging board claims only 141 million (and change) devices, somewhat short of the 150 million claim in the lawsuit.

The complaint asserts that the defendants violated the Federal Wiretap Act, the Stored Electronic Communications Act, and the Federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.

Background

CarrierIQ is software that allows hardware makers and/or carriers to log various activities smartphone users engage in on their mobile devices. It entered the limelight last week in the wake of a security researcher’s report that showed the software logging and possibly transmitting every button push, keystrokes, messages, and GPS data.

He also demonstrated that the software was hidden from the list of running apps available in Android, that it couldn’t be stopped, that the software logged data that was denied to other apps, and that it even logged search terms sent over a secured connection.

CarrierIQ itself denied that its software did many of the things the security demonstrated in a video posted to YouTube, and there has been much pointing of fingers, corporate denials, and other efforts from some of the companies named in this suit to deny any role in the software being present on specific device or to deny some of the specifics in what kind of data was being collected, who controlled it, and whether or not it was being transmitted, and to whom.

Apple

Apple itself said that it had stopped using CarrierIQ with iOS 5, and that it would remove any reference to the software in a future iOS update. The company also said that its use of CarrierIQ has always been opt-in, and that it did not use the software to log, “keystrokes, messages or any other personal information for diagnostic data and have no plans to ever do so.”

Besides, most of the time, such hardware is not seperate/removable.
