Re: Who cares?
They probably aren't phoning home but perhaps they have code that can remotely enable them to when needed. Or maybe they never will. Once they get their back-end hardware placed everywhere in ten years they could listen to every call or text being sent. Similar to what the US does. However, they wouldn't use the power with such restraint. Not to say that the US does all the time but consider China with no people to hold their officials accountable they could run wild.
