    TL;dr The Government can obtain information on you from your cell phone provider without a warrant.

    En banc 4th Circuit OKs tracking cellphone location without a warrant (http://www.abajournal.com/news/article/en_banc_4th_circuit_oks_tracking_cellphone_location_without_a_warrant)
    " Eliminating a circuit split, the en banc 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday reversed its own earlier decision by a three-judge panel and held that a warrant is not required for law enforcement to track location information for a subject’s cellphone.

    Instead, a court order based simply on a showing of relevancy is all that is required to get information about the cell towers through which calls have been routed to and from the phone, according to Politico and the Wall Street Journal(sub. req.). A warrant requires a more stringent showing of probable cause."

    No worries.

    Use cash to buy a pre paid visa.

    Use the Visa card to buy a burner phone.

    Phone is now not under your name.
