The phones inherit their characteristic of being untraceable by the fact that do not connect to any cellular network whatsoever. In this way, neither the network operator that provides the link to the phone generating the call, nor the operator providing the link to the phone receiving the call, are aware of the fact that a call is taking place, neither will the source operator is aware of where the call is directed, nor the receiving operator is aware of where the call is sourced. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Glen Dayton 0 Questions 4 Answers 0 Best Answers 28 Points View Profile Glen Dayton 2021-03-09T12:38:00+01:00Added an answer on March 9, 2021 at 12:38 pm Burner phones are often used in crime dramas, burner phones have a multitude of uses – and some are more shady than others.
