Re: This site has turned terrible

That makes no sense at all for digital systems. That was only valid for analog systems that used limited to no authentication schemes for network connection. The FCC doesn't require this for digital systems at all. If this was the case, then multi-band handsets supporting non-US bands would have to be prohibited.

GSM, cdmaOne/CDMA2000, UMTS, and LTE use high levels of encyption, track spectrum being used, and log in to the network to authorize access.

If you've ever read the specifications for any of these technologies (which are freely available), you'd know that there is built-in support for logging all connections and time on the network. GSM/UMTS/LTE systems record IMEI, IMSI, radio interface and frequency, and provisioned service levels. cdmaOne/CDMA2000 systems record MEID+MSI pairing, frequency, and provisioned service levels.

This is totally not valid at all.
