Some dude with shady connections and expertise in cyber security presumably would have the knowledge to keep his phone in a shielded bag if he didn’t want to be tracked.I was looking at cell phones, tracking, geolocation, and SIM cards and the bottom line is this:
- Your location is triangulated every 10 seconds to access the closest cell tower, making it easy for emergency services to find you (for example).
- Removing the SIM card will not change the ability for your phone to be traced, since the trace is based on the connection to the cell tower.
So I think that if you took the SIM card out, but did not change your location significantly, that 10 second trace would continue to "identify" your cell phone.
Not sure what would happen if you took the SIM card out, traveled a significant distance without it, and put a new one in if that would change things.
Perhaps not, as you would still be bouncing off the cell towers as you moved along.
Although if you passed through or even stopped in a place where you know there was no cell phone reception at all, that might be helpful (or harmful), depending on your perspective.
Yes, so either he is fine and unconcerned right now or someone else has his phone.

drudge describes him as a "counter-hacker"I think regarding someone with his skills and line of work, there is reason for concern.
And also, if he was doing something involving hacking from a Norwegian outpost, it could be that Norwegian authorities wanted to speak with him.
Shirley Bottolfsen is originally from Co.Tipperary and came to Bodø 50 years ago april 2006. The Irish community in Norway was proud and delighted to have Shirley lead the parade up Karl Johansgate this year . It was particularly appropriate that the parade proceeded in the direction of the palace as the King had recently awarded Shirley with ‘kongens fortjeneste medalje’ for her lifelong work on behalf of the elderly and needy in Bodø and Finmark.I’m slightly confused. Is there a reference to Bodø in that piece?
