    Without a warrant, absolutely.

    Yes i have a right to keep my location private. The government does not need more authority in any facet of our society or our economy - they just keep messing things up further

    Absolutely! The thought of government being able to demand your location records without cause or a warrant brings new meaning to the phrase "Big Brother is Watching"...

    Absoulutly, to follow a productive citizen around to make a PERSONAL PROFILE is absolutely out of line. If there is a murderer or sex offender or basicly anyone that could be a threat to their comminity that needs to be located or have their location monitored then its feasible. But to just watch everyone to see what their doing and what type of person they are is crazy!

    Absolutely our private conversations and our locations are private! To me, taking thAt
    right away from me violates the I, IV, & V ammendments to the constitution.

    Save for rare occurences (maybe in the middle of a 1,000 acre private estate), I do not have an expectation of privacy for the locations that I visit. It is conceivable that my location can be determined by police following me, traffic cams, other people observing me, etc... Therefore, legally, I do not have a right to privacy for my location as determined from my cell phone locator. If the FBI want to churn this information to determine potential terrorist suspects, then have at it. If you don't like this, then I believe we need to pass a law specifically limiting the use of this information.

    Yes, but I don't think we have any privacy anymore, about anything...and never will again. The Genie is out of the bottle and George Orwell's book 1984 is coming or
    is here, you can't put the tooth paste back in the tube. In Pandora's Box, the last thing
    in it was Hope, and as for privacy all we can do is Hope we don't turn into the Gestapo.

    If you don't want your conversations overheard don't talk on a phone.
    If you don't want your location tracked live....don't use a phone.
    The genie is out of the bottle.....that's your new world order...get over it!!

    No, you don't. Cell phones are a matter of convienence, not a right. The 911 feature should be the sole reason alone, but if there are other factors that help keep America secure, then by all means. Besides, if you are not doing anything wrong or questionable, you should have nothing to hide.

    Anything that is broadcast over the public airwaves is fair game. This includes listening by the government. There are no wiretap laws for cellphones.

    What? If I don't want my phone conversations or location tracked...Don't talk on the phone?!...Maybe you're
    all comfy with government intrusion, but many people are not! The last time I checked , this was still America!

    @mimi57 Come out of your cave......they're sifting through your e-mail, text and phone conversations right now.....put the wrong two words together and you show up live on someone's console.
    Not say'n it's right or wrong........just the way it is.

    If they need to track my movements there is a procedure to do so...it's called a warrant. If they were to come ask me I would probably tell them without hesitation. I have nothing to hide. But, I like to know if I'm being "tracked" and why.

    @ctc I am not in my cave...and I have nothing to hide. However, I do find it somewhat unnerving that we have no
    privacy anymore. I guess there is nothing we can do about it, but it doesn't the fact that we are losing our basic freedoms...doesn't that bother you?..

    Wait a minute... Is this under President Obamas administration?
    So much for transparency.

    I don't want the Feds having access to my intimate conversations, photos or location. Without a warrant, except for 911 calls, it should be illegal

    Yes, all citizens have a right to privacy. No warrant, no way!

    @Keyjo What are you doing that is questionable or potentially wrong? What do you have to hide? Cell phones are not a right. A privledge of convienence.
