       Until you get questioned by the police about the guy who called up a hit man using your phone...

       I think you need to explain the data retention laws thing a bit more. And maybe why they deserve to be defeated.

       This would make for an interesting sting ploy for gullible criminals.

       //people who have flat rate billing run around with t-shirts: FREE PUBLIC PHONE. end result: anonymity on the go.//

End result: increased billing, undisclosed income, false charges for criminal activity, increased risk of exposure to bodily harm, unsolicited phone calls from CLID, spousal conflict, contractual conflict, phishing, phreaking, spamming, cloning, more paperwork (for company supplied phones), VAS rated calls, cost of t-shirt, missed calls, international calls, fashion police, and more...
