​No, this is not the usage I know. The burner phones/devices that are
issued by companies to their employees are perfectly connected to both the
company and the employee. They just don't have any confidential information
on them, and the employee has their "real" phone/device elsewhere in a safe
place, so if the burner device/phone gets confiscated, nothing of value is
