Prevent my cell phone calls monitored & tracked- GPS

by wantstobesafe / October 7, 2011 6:54 AM PDT

Help! I have an IPhone 4 and my ex-husband is somehow monitoring my phone calls and tracking my whereabouts too. Simply turning off the phone doesn't help. Since the battery is built in, I can not remove it. Do I need to get any type of cell phone that has a removable battery or what?

Can you clarify.....

How is your ex monitoring calls? Do you mean the dialed numbers or did you think he was listening to your calls? I assure you he can't listen to your calls.

If the phone is powered off...

...there is no way he can track you via GPS if you change location while the phone is off.

Are you still sharing an account with the ex? That would be one place to start. Have customer support work with you on this. Be as polite and patient as possible and they will be sympathetic in my experience helping a friend who was being harassed/threatened.

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

The Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
