YOUR CELL PHONE RECORDS AS EVIDENCE – HOW LONG CAN THE GOVERNMENT GO BACK TO FIND CALL RECORDS & TEXT MESSAGES

Your cell phone provides your Government, not to mention your friends, family and favorite stalkers – if they know where to look, with a huge amount of information about you. 


Call towers used by your cell phone provide an accurate guide to your location. Text messages supply not only the words used but to whom the words are sent with the time sent and received. Pictures taken not only provide evidence of the picture itself but can provide the location of where the picture was taken imbedded within the photograph. For internet usage from the phone the ip address tracks location of the phone as well as ip session and destination information, in other words everything you do on the web.
