EXPOSED! cellphones - which, what & how for privacy

One of the questions I am getting asked a lot is: "what cellphone can I use and still be private? I could use Apple, right?"

In an Orwellian world, the best you can do is not using a cellphone at all. No kidding, you're basically bringing an ankle monitor along with you wherever you go. Apple and Google tracking you, every step of your way. But if that wasn't bad enough, they're then sharing and selling your data.
