Surely phone masts track Sims and not phones
I'm sure the masts do track SIM's, and that was partly my point:
- A perpetrator might need to browse through Claudia's phone for information
- If a perpetrator had kept Claudias phone on with her SIM inserted; then the Police could track the phone
- I am sure that some information is stored on the phone and/or the SIM
- Therefore; could the perpetrator transferred all of the data within Claudia's phone onto the phone itself rather than Claudia's SIM
- Then, Claudia's SIM could have been removed from her phone and the perpetrator could have destroyed Claudia's SIM card.
- This could allow the perpetrator to put their own SIM in Claudia's phone. The data saved on Claudia's phone could then have been transferred to the perpetrator's SIM card that's being used inside Claudia's phone
- The data then could be looked at safely without being traceable on Claudia's phone. The data could be browsed through more easily on Claudia's phone. Furthermore; would you risk transferring data onto your own phone
- Claudia's phone could have been discarded at a later date, and the perpetrator could easily just keep the SIM
Thus; has the phone been kept on for so long because the activities involved with transferring data and obtaining a new SIM card, been problematic. Why wasn't the phone switched off earlier. It may be that the perpetrators have tried to confuse movements. However; would it not be a good idea to switch a phone off earlier, to eradicate knowledge of people's movements?
If the reason for Claudia's phone being left switched on for so long was in order to retrieve data from it. Then surely this points to the perpetrator/perpetrators knowing Claudia?
Why would a stranger need Claudia's phone to be switched on for so long? Surely they would not need anything from her phone. There is a chance they forgot to switch the phone off. But didn't several people try ringing Claudia? So; surely that would prompt a stranger to switch the phone off?
