I doubt a person under 18 is legally binded to a cell phone contract.

By law, one must be at least age 18 to have "contractual capacity." So, no, a person under the age of 18 is not legally binded to a contract of any kind.

I do not worry so much about GPS on cell phones for a few reasons. Just wait until robots enter the police force so we can have a cop on every block. We all know the government has no problem spending our money so price would not matter "if it saves just one life." Robots which may detain individuals. Robots which may shoot individuals. This inevitability is what we should fear the most. Even the cameras at every intersection, funded by us with kickbacks to politicians, are not as much of a threat.

The law is from Finland. Overthere, things are things are different. I tried googling it. But I don't care enough. Hold your cell phone to your speakers. Wait a couple minutes... A ramen.

Judas, that brings up a good modern philosophical question: if one can not find something on google, does that something exist?
