Faraday bags

I was wondering how many of you guerrillas use faraday bags to stay under the radar? I never carry my phone into the bush because of ping signals, but recently I've felt like it may be a good idea just in case of an emergency.

Is there any that you guys have experience with that you feel are secure?

Buy a cheap cellphone with cash ( I used t-mobile) and load minutes with cash, and only turn it on if you need to make a call.

You should be able to test the faraday bag (this works the same as a cage?) by trying to call your phone/find my phone app?
Can you leave your phone in flight mode until you need it?

That's not a bad idea. I'd probably also want a bag for that phone just so I'm not paranoid lol.

Seeing if it works or not won't be hard, just want to be safe and make sure absolutely no signals can reach or leave it.

That's actually what I do now for my phone. The screens cracked so I plan to upgrade to a new one here soon. Not sure if the next one will be have a battery that's easily removed. The bags can also be effective for other electronics in maintaining security, so I figured I'd give them a try.

Most of the time, aluminum foil will do the trick.

Especially if you pay attention to the edges & fold it over a few times.

With some of the newer phones, you can't even take the damn battery out!

If you do buy a burner phone remember to pay cash and not debit/ credit. That’s really all I have that hasn’t already been covered.

Also, if they are after you, they can find the location of a sim card that is not inside a phone with the accuracy of 10 meters by actively searching for it with higher power radio output from the cell towers. And that's what they can do in my homecountry, which has old tech, altrough they are very surveilance prone.
Also, just because the people were using the prepaid simcards in burner phones a d changing them before a court could sign a new surveillance order for the new number, you can't buy prepaid sims without showing id now in my country. So that's a well known method to the police since the phones were invented most probably.
