I don't think Apple gives any backdoors to any agencies, but I agree that no matter what, you can't be 100% untraceable. Any government can get into it, but at least Apple isn't leaving backdoors open for everyone to get into and steal your information.
Whoa, this thread is depressing, lol.
I'm glad I got my problem solved, but what I learned about Blackberry is depressing.
Well, if the NSA can see everywhere, then...
*drops pants and moons the NSA*
And may they all go get shtooped by an army of viagra doped gorillas.

I'm more concerned with more and more ads than I am with the gov't agencies peeking at me on the throne and seeing my texts to my wife about the grocery list. I'm not gonna like all the new full page ads coming in iOS 8. And iBeacons? GEEEZ!

All the data that can be got is gathered in raw form. Nobody looks at it. Until there is a reason.
As individuals we are as noteworthy as a fire ant in an ant hill four miles down the road. But when we do something stupid we become as noticeable as the fire ant that bites your leg at a picnic.
The NSA, CIA, FBI don't know we exist as individuals. We're nothing but raw bits of data and algorithms. Given reason, they can gather all they want or need. And every intelligence agency in every country has the means to do the same. People zero in on the US because of Snowden. News flash.....other countries do the same. You're in London? Look up wherever you are and wave to the surveillance cameras.
Read up on how countries coordinate with Interpol.

What i find highly interesting is the concept that something as mundane as a smartphone could deter any government agency from getting what they want.
If they want information they will get information. Any company in the US will have to comply with subpoenas issued as a result of an investigation. Nobody is immune. This idea that BlackBerry won't turn anything over is nothing more than a fallacy. Look at them buckle under pressure from governments who wanted servers in their countries....

Also, this thread is silly, and OP...no offense, but you're incredibly dramatic. Was your frustration warranted? Sure! But why on earth would you just up and stop using (even sell) devices that you actually prefer over something like this? As the old saying goes "Don't throw the baby out with the bath water."...it'd be like receiving an overcooked steak at a restaurant and giving up on steak forever...lol!
