track your bar girl-friend-ONE NATION, TRACKED

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Don't you love it you take a few photos with your phone next day you get a message "share your photos with friends" W.T.F
Are they, whoever they are looking at my photos?

If your cell phone is connected to a network it can be tracked and pin-pointed. Carriers have the ability to use triangulation or trilateration. It’s why people use burner phones. Law enforcement will often work with a carrier to locate a given number but if that number is not associated with an actual person (who would have to register it in their name) it doesn’t stop them tracking its whereabouts. Linking a phone that hasn’t been registered to a person becomes trickier though... that’s why carriers give tempting freebies when you buy a SIM card.

Can you really change the IMEI number? I have a locked phone that needs a new number. Anyone want to buy an Australian iPhone XR with very low miles but locked in Australia.

The IMIE is factory set to each handset. You can change the sim but changing the IMIE, while possible, requires specific technical equipment. Also, a lot of countries are making, or have already made, changing the IMIE number illegal.

This article, from India, mentions 18,000 units With the same IMIE number!
