That made me wonder. What are the risks involved using a Tails PC and
getting online through a 3G clean Android smartphone with no apps
installed or Google accounts activated tethered through USB?

Or better yet: who can see what?

I read the hardware is rigged (Samsungs), you wrote about the software
being rigged (the ability to remotely install apps), and surely the
phone company can do a lot of tricks from the early days of GSM. So is
it crazy to route Tor traffic through such a gateway?
