in the decision to drop 3G (and 2G) is the spookosphere. Since one feature of Stingray and friends is to force all phones in the vicinity down to earlier standards with weaker encryption, dropping support for those earlier standards would surely call attention to the presence of a (probably unwarranted, in both senses) fake tower.

Won't someone think of the snoopers?
