that just shows that the phone was in a given location.
if the criminal leaves the phone at home, it won't put them at the
scene of the crime.
cell tower pings *won't* get access to the data *on* the phone, which
includes photos, text messages, email, calendar, notes, financial
information, social media information and much, much more.
that stuff is *extremely* valuable, not just for investigators, but
also for other criminals, who now know where you live and what your
schedule is (i.e., when to break into your house), who your kids are
and what they look like, where they go to school, etc.
