Sorry for coming late to the party. This is an interesting idea, 
that I hadn't thought of before. I also like that it can allow one 
to stop disclosing location data in a way that's impossible with 
GSM, by turning off the separate portable GSM router ("MiFi"). Well, 
you can turn off GSM on many phones, but obviously there's plenty 
more trust that the baseband can't be hacked, and that the phone is 
behaving well, compared to the GSM router.
