[liberationtech] Fwd: Re: [Freedombox-discuss] inspirational projects / freedombox neighbours

Does anyone have knowledge of what network turn offs consist of? Do they 
just disable voice/text/data functionality and leave the bts 
infrastructure functional? This way "activists" can still be tracked 
etc. I presume they have an IMEI database and what not? Where can I find
information on this sort of thing and educate myself?

I wouldn't want folks to have a false sense of security.

One good thing about dictators' switching off mobile phone networks is 
at least it stops android phones' potential to sell out activists!  A 
distinction from Iphone's  seeming to actually compromise pro-democracy 
people in Iran!
