    Times change... even taking batteries out isn't acceptable anymore. All transmitting devices, batteries installed or not, are prohibited and stored in lockers outside secure areas.

    A lot of cell phones don't have removable batteries anymore.

    The main battery of every cell phone can be removed, once. :)

    That is true. But I don't want to suffer the consequences of doing that!

    The cell carriers track all cell phone locations with an algorithm using triangulation of signal strength data from the towers and store the data for a while. Even flip phones. Turning off location services doesn't stop this process. Most newer non smart phones are now made with gps functions built into the chip set for greater accuracy. This function was mandated with the enhanced 911 related laws for your benefit.
