TinFoilHatFilter: So what's the most current info on cell-phone tracking? What can government/private agencies do nowadays if you own a cell phone? (Location? Coversation monitoring? Direct microphone feeds even when phone is off?
) What *do* they do with any frequency? (Feel free to differentiate between agencies such as FBI, local police and private investigators)

I've read some info (such as the news article linked above), but I'd like to get more specific, less sensationalist info. Something like:
*Who (if anyone) has access to your approximate location when your phone is on but not engaged in a call? When engaged in a call? When phone is off?
(FBI? Police? Phone company? Anyone who pays some private agency money?)
