    Information I was talking to an IT Expert about Mobile phones

    and I said I have never owned one he said you are Lucky the Government cannot track you or Listen into your Conversations using a scanner

    People  Cannot track you to sell you stuff or steal your ID or bank stuff

    cardless Withdrawals at ATMs people can scan your cards and Mobile phones then empty your account without having a single card

    No Thank you to mobile phones
