phone tracking

Our works mobile phone has a tracker on it, is there any way to get around this tracker, so as to block the signal? any help would be appreceated.

Yes several ways, but this is not the place.

It has a tracker on it for a reason i would say,ask your boss,see if he will help you.

Do I detect a note of sarcasm ACOLYTE :-)

If i was kench's boss and i found out he was going on line to try to find ways to circumvent security
and do something he shouldn't be,then i would be very upset,and would think very carefully about keeping his employment,not only that but if someone did help him do this then they themselves could be left open to prosecution by the firm in question.I also dont think its a question that should be asked on this forum,it may be just me that thinks that,but thats my opinion.
If what kench is trying to do is not against the company rules then my suggestion was valid.

Turn the phone off and say you were out of range, poor reception.

Or wrap the whole phone in silver foil!!!, am wondering why you want to do it though.

I'd forgotten that one, a relative used to do it when they wanted to avoid "call outs" late in the evening.

This could have health and safety implications as well if you work off site.

Cover it in bubble gum usually works.
