With a smartphone the person comes to a site in your profile, in the profile, then only his nickname.

Connect to the Internet using a SIM card of one network operator (e.g. MTS).
SIM card is decorated on the person.

Given the above, then none of what anonymity can not be out of the question, right?
Since this person will track its SIM card.

No.

SIM card is decorated on the person.
If the SIM card issued to another person - in principle, nothing changes. Although identification is more difficult.
The operator receives the following data
  • Actually the ID of the SIM card - and can database to check to whom it is issued.
  • The ID of the phone - and can database to see what was tested this phone worked on the network. If you this phone put my SIM card it's too easy to track.
  • The location of the subscriber - precision positioning is different, it is sometimes possible to say with accuracy up to ten meters, sometimes with an accuracy of ten kilometers. If you are in the city, using location history you can make a route with the exact breakdown of the time, walk along this route, and collect data from video cameras, which the city a lot, and get a lot of your portraits, and get to know places where you often visit.

In addition to this purely technical information now implement a system which saves all SMS, voice calls, and some traffic which was transferred to this SIM card.

It is clear that such tracking is the process complicated, expensive, and not all available.
the simple policeman or the Opera, this information is not received, even if you strongly want, but in the case can send a request, as this information can obtain intelligence, and people having very serious money and connections.

You yourself and answered your own question - in this case, no anonymity there.

When you work through a cellular carrier of anonymity cannot be determined. I mean of course regular work, and not a one-time connection via a SIM card, purchased a bum Vasya, which half an hour later discarded in a puddle of acid, and the telephone is placed under the train.
In this case, of course refers to the anonymity against the state. Against the neighbour/wife/employer, this method is quite work

UPD: of Course, it may well be that a neighbor/wife/employer have access to Your carrier, but for now this is quick and easy to get hooked...

In the current realities anonymity via mobile phone is achieved as follows:
  1. SIM without reference to person
  2. A Chinese phone with the ability to change IMEI (without hardware IMEI in principle)
  3. Some DNS/ICMP tunneling (can be http proxy, but not as serious) to countries with weak legislation in terms of regulation of the Internet (Africa, Asia).
  4. To connect from honeycomb operator, which is the least likely to happen (never will)


PS Still got to worry about anonymous payment, but that's another story.

Anonymity from whom?

From a neighbor Vasi this approach will ensure anonymity completely.
From the FSB, as the FSB has access to information on communications phone number with the passport official owner.
