All phones are tracked no matter who made it or whats on it There really is no clean phone, the problem is the way the networks themselves function. If every tower on the network looked for every phone getting a call there wouldn't be enough bandwidth, so they track every phone real-time to see which towers have the best signal quality to send you your call, data, or texts.
As long as your phone is connected to the network, your phones microphone, camera, GPS, and it's contents are available to anyone who wants them. Worse yet your phone is nothing more than an open book to someone with a laptop and an antenna.
We've spent years researching the problem and have compiled a series of news reports that clearly lay out the problem, including the fact that turning your phone off doesn't cut it said at the end of the clips by ABC, FOX, Local network affiliates.

So then what's the solution? Based on what you said, I can see why something is needed.... but is there no way to balance functionality of how things work with privacy concerns?
I think the solution is to have strong data privacy laws that aren't full of loopholes. And those should also have to apply to each and every government agency from the local cops to the FBI, CIA, and NSA.
The problem is that all the opponents of such a law are very well-connected. A real privacy law would only benefit the general public, and we all know how well politicians are at playing many people off against each other. So many people are so caught up in the petty partisan wedge issues that they never look at the things that really matter, and the politicians like it that way.
