You're paranoid and don't understand technology. You can have a smartphone and use it in a manner which minimizes privacy intrusion to nothing more than an analog cell phone.

My phone has three antennas... THREE!

Privacy concerns, sure... but uhh, you're on teh Interwebz. No different than your phone. VPN and encryption exists for a reason. And yes, everything on my phone is encrypted.

I'm pretty sure the antenna is still present, or otherwise it wouldn't be making that connection with the cell site. :P

Innie or outie...

Antenna sticks out or antenna hides under the skin...

Testicles or ovaries...

It's all basically the same.

The dropped calls aren't caused by the lack of external antennas. People complained about dropping calls even when external antennas were common.

You should also stop using the internet since you value your privacy so much.

The antennas are internal now. External antennas were needed in early days because there were many fewer cell base stations in use.
