Why has COVID-19 tracker on my mobile?

There's quite a few of faceache saying they won't use the government app because they don't want to be tracked, they don't seem to realise that certain government agencies can track them by their phone regardless.....if their lives were interesting enough.

They would be wasting their time with me, mine is usually left in the office drawer, and I take an old Nokia with me
I only keep it in case the car or bike is nicked, as its paired to the trackers

If their lives are interesting enough, whereas their phone providers, social media sites etc are tracking everyone irregardless

They will get bored with my Nokia then, it spent 4 weeks sitting in a window sill, I forgot where I left it, so picked up the calls remotely via my landline
the other Nokia is rarely turned on, once every three months to make a call and keep it live
 
I’ve been boiling mine in milk. Still covid free.
That won't work you need to put your phone in the microwave, ten minutes on high should make it covid free

What SIM do you use? I'm looking for a very low/ no usage SIM for a miniature back up phone for my daughter , should she be out and lose or have her main mobile nicked.

That really hurts. I have been having trauma counselling since the fire. Just plucking up the courage to go out again and you had to go and bring it all up over again.

Years of therapy in the bin. Thanks.

are you claiming to have done that, or be that?

I don't know which is worse
