Hi,

sorry for a question, it is probably off-topic on this list, but
probably someone would know answer.

There are some rumors that NSA is able to track mobile eve if it is
powered off.

While it seems stupid at the firs sight, there are some explanations for
that:

Anyway, I have another question. Is it true, that by ETSI standard there
is an option, that mobile phone which is powered off, is waked up by the
network?

And another, is it true, that by ETSI standard there is an option to
switch microphone on remotely on a mobile?

Regards,

M.
