Though I have never owned one I have seen them used in the movies. I also once saw a lady walk outside of her house, drop about 10 flip phones on the pavement, and proceed to bash them in with a hammer. The infamous burner phone allows you to communicate with crooks and scoundrels with out having to worry about the fuzz figuring you out!
There is currently a bill called the Pre-Paid Mobile Device Security Gap Act of 2016. This bill would require anyone purchasing a pre-paid cellular device to register it with their identity. If the bill passes you will have to go back to searching the block for a pay phone to make your mischievous calls.
On a more serious note this could help government officials track down criminals and terrorist. I'm all about safety, but should it come at the cost of our privacy? Or does safety trump all? Also have you ever used a burner phone?
