Yeah even if it's not a honeypot it's a dumb gimmick ripoff

i have an idea and will make a post about it.

WHAT IF : everyone here buys one or two and instead of naively communicating away about 1776 like we are too stupid to know its a honey pot... we just text I LOVE YOU a few times a day while keeping the phone hidden away from earshot and never moving anywhere. imagine if it truly is a honey pot black box with the usual baked in tracking and their is a team of algos, bots and humanoid agents frothing at the mouth to catch us all and day after day after day they see no interesting movement. no search history. can hear no voice to text transcripts... they just see I LOVE YOU

Do you trust Gizmodo?

Not particularly, but I'd already checked out Freedom Phone's website and sketchy is an understatement. I trust Gizmodo more than I trust Freedom Phone.

make your own maga phone. use microG instead of google play, remove other shady built in services then use a root based firewall. don't install things like facebook and check all apps for spyware.

my phone is like my desktop and when I look at other people's shit it's 1996 with 10 versions of bonzai buddy installed

95% of people don't have the technical knowledge to do any of this.
