Most people wouldn't even think to disable them.

Disabling them or removing them just makes you look suspicious to the average police state cop.

We noticed in 2002 that we were getting intercepted on peace actions, and decided to leave our phones turned off outside the room when we were planning one. The very fact a bunch of known activists phones were in the one place and simultaneously turned off was an obvious alert to the police.

This is in a democracy, nobody was killed, just a few careers blacklisted.
