I have a question to people that would consider buying this. Do you feel like you are being watched/spied on and/or have surveillance on you? If so, what makes you think this?

People are overreacting to being spied upon. I think the pair of goons dressed in dark suits and a bulge under the armpit, wearing shades and earpieces and who never smile, who have have been parked outside my house in a dark SUV for the last month and who follow me everywhere I go are actually lost tourists who are trying to pluck up the courage to ask me directions.

this is happening you? This is why you would get the phone? What do you do to trigger an interest from certain groups that they would be willing to go to great costs to have you spied on/surveillanced?

No. Of course it's not happening to me but it would make an adventurous tale if it did. As for the phone, I'm not interested in it but I'm sure the paranoid or those who had something hide would be and that's who it's targeted at.

yes, I often contemplate on suspending my morals to cash in on fears like this but I think I would feel too guilty by doing it. Being a snake charmer/miracle water vendor just has a bad vibe to it for me.
