the carriers will still have

the carriers will still have your gps positioning, but this guarantees that your communication is kept private. the encryption/decryption is done at the application layer, and there's no reason why the carrier would have access to your keys. is it possible for the carrier/apple to leave a backdoor to access the contents of your phone? sure, but i would be surprised if no one has caught it yet.
