Ok, but is this info stored/saved for all cellphones? Doesn't seem possible.
What I'm trying to find out is this.
Could LE or my cell provider look back at my phone records/info and be able to tell every place I've been, even when I wasn't making or receiving calls? I don't think so.
Au contraire......well according to this article anyway:
The phones communicate via a nationwide network of nearly 300,000 cell towers and 600,000 micro sites, which perform the same function as towers. When they are turned on, they ping these nodes once every seven seconds or so, registering their locations, usually within a radius of 150 feet.
By 2018 new Federal Communications Commission regulations will require that cellphone location information be even more precise: within 50 feet. Newer cellphones also are equipped with GPS technology, which uses satellites to locate the user more precisely than tower signals can. Cellphone companies retain location data for at least a year. AT&T has information going all the way back to 2008. 007 up in this mf
