Location option on Can my phone and how it can be usedlocated (e.g. by emergency personnel) when I use a VPN?

I have actually been learning on my own just by reading about VPN and how to protect myself from Big Brother so to speak. I just happened to discover that if I turn off my location option on my cell phone I would save a lot of energy and not have to plug it in so often and at the same time I realize that the GPS function would be defunct if I making the right connection there. However an interesting little pop-up always says that emergency personnel will never be able 2 b blocked by turning off my location option... In effect they can always find you. I find that disturbing sense emergency Personnel is very general term and big brother and this country is getting more and more intrusive since 9/11. To my knowledge the only way to completely block GPS tracking through your IP address is to turn off the phone, if I am understanding things correctly. I only came to this understanding when I lost my phone and was unable to track it because it had died and therefore there is no way to find it through the app that was installed specifically to find a lost phone LOL.

My question is that I am considering testing in a VPN but before I do I want to make sure that I am understanding correctly that without IP address that is correctly pinpointing you to a location which is what a VPN service does, then emergency location would be defunct without having to actually turn off your phone?

I just find it really disturbing that they can always track you on your phone even with your location option turned off and since I'm new to this I just wanted to make sure that I could use my phone safely through a vpn and the emergency locations / services ( I mean how general is that term? They do not specify if it is a nine-one-one call or if it's just any government agency that wants to say they are operating under the emergency Services clause) would not be an option for Big Brother while I was using the VPN ie they would be clueless where I was.
