Sorry.....here’s the link:
I am sure they are.
Gee this used to be somjething only the NSA could do - now it seems to be all DIY.
Progress, ain’t it wonderful?
If someone is listening in to MY cell phone calls, I pity them. It must be because they’re on assignment from the Dark Side. Trust me... no one would do it by choice.
If I catch them, I’ll probably offer to send them some NoDoze. It’s just the humanitarian thing to do. :-)
So whenever I’m able to remodel a room, I should use two layers of aluminum foil?
LOL! You and I both! ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Naaaaaaaaah. Just lead. ;-)
I had a radio shack scanner that could do that years ago it was fun
You would think the phone companies could block the functionality of spy apps if they wanted to. Just speculating, but these things have to leave a lot of tracks in the provider’s system, like the phone number of the spy.
That would cost and weigh too much. And get rid of any possibility of using a laptop without a CAT5 in it.
The best way to make sure your cellphone is really turned off is a hammer.
The person on the other end of the call?
You phreaker, you. ;-)
If it makes anyone feel better, the only way this can be done requires the spyphone software be physically loaded onto the cellphone that is to be monitored. No one makes spyphone software that can be remotely installed. So as long as you never let your phone out of your control, you have nothing to worry about.

I bought a 2nd-hand BB on the net that I unlocked for about $25 bucks. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm.
They don’t get real specific but it sounds like a piece of software has to be installed on your phone for this to be possible. I wonder if this can be downloaded to your phone without your knowledge if no one else gets physical access to your phone.
You bet, if your worth big bucks, have pissed off the wrong people, or just happen to the the target for whatever reason...Happens all the time....this has been going on since they started selling cell phones.
15 years ago, I remember old analog cell phone signals coming across my 900 Mhz scanner. I heard lawyers talking about cases, and real estate agents giving SSNs to mortgage companies. It was the cellular wild, wild west back then.
Is someone listening to all phone calls: YES
Is someone logging Twitter messages: YES
Is someone logging text messages: YES
Is someone recording fax messages: YES
Is someone recording blog posts: YES
Is someone saving all websites visited: YES
Is someone logging credit card purchases: YES
Is someone recording...etc., etc., etc.: YES, YES and YES.
Any more dumb questions?
“Is someone listening to your cell phone calls?” Yes because too many people are doing mindless chit chat so loud that everybody in the grocery store can hear.
Anyone who is not concerned by this thinks they have no enemies.
Anyone who Freeps has enemies, unknown though they be.
Digital changed that.
This comes under the heading of “slipshod voyeuristic surveillance”, and has become a serious problem. But before I give you the problem, let me describe the end game.
England has over a million CCTV cameras, but only about a thousand of them are regularly monitored. As such, they are just intrusive and omnipresent. But what makes them dangerous is that since the government cannot monitor them, it is going to start paying the public to monitor them. By offering cash prizes if the public sees anything interesting to the government. A massive informant network not seen since the end of East Germany. Life in a vicious fishbowl.
But what about America? In some ways, we are even worse than the Brits, but in different, equally unwholesome ways. Any number of government organizations and corporations create and swap personal information about people, to a point of nonsense or ridiculousness.
And there is little or no error checking in these databases. This information is compiled, consolidated, bought and sold, then it is “data mined” to discover other data—connections between you and other people and events.
The sad and bizarre thing is that many organizations *care*, at least voyeuristically, about compiling vast amounts of data about you, factual or not.
In fact, this posting that you are reading right now has likely been archived, not just by the government, but by corporate and even private organizations, because nothing attracts the attention of voyeurs like talking about them.
The ability to reach inside your computer and get data is well known. Passwords, credit card numbers, whatever. And even if it can’t be done directly, your computer, keyboard, and monitor give off more than enough electronic signatures to see what you are doing from over a block away.
Virtually every long distance call in the US is monitored by computer, and this was happening in the early 1990s. By now, not only local and cell phone calls, but passive cell phones are likely routinely monitored as well.
The only hope we really have is threefold. First is incompetence and inefficiency on the part of the voyeurs. Second is that they are deprived of the money to continue with such lewd behavior. And third is a renewed sense of federalism in the United States, that outlaws such depravity.

Having it fall out of your shirt pocket into the pit of an outhouse in a remote national park works pretty well, too.
Please do NOT ask me how I know that.
Given the crappy cell phone reception in our rural area, I say let them listen and please send me a transcript.
>> But what about America?
We have guns.
The Fed.gov “judges” have already ruled that there is legally NO expectation of privacy on wireless devices, though. That means use a LAND LINE!
The spyware could masquerade as an app and be loaded by the user himself. There are thousands of free apps for iPhone, Blackberry, Droid, etc. The user thinks he’s installing a game app or some dumb utility app, but it’s really the spy software that gets loaded.
Can you hear me now ???
If anyone is dumb enough to listen to my cell phone calls they should get a life...
Exactly- just how much info does "Honey, help me get the old dog back in the house" convey?
All the Souper Seekret work I've done is right here- where anyone can search it.
We also have religion, but that might not help us out with surveillance, either.
Some chat-rooms I’ve dropped that into have gone spastic until they understand what it’s really doing. LOL
You can run, but you can’t hide. Everywhere you go, there you are!
We have the technology for secure encrypted cell phone calls. It was blocked first by Bush I and killed dead for all practical purposes by impeached ex-President Clinton's minions Freeh and Reno.
"War on (some) Drug" warriors can look in the mirror to see who is really to blame.
Weasel words at best.
That means use a LAND LINE!
What makes you think those are any better? It's not as if you actually need to physically touch a land line to tap phone conversations going across.
The 2nd and 4th amendments are sadly flawed - they don't go far enough. They needed to include secure communications. Unfortunately, the Founding Fathers did not anticipate technology very well.
 In case people have forgotten, encryption technology that could have made cell phones private was ruled to be a munition in the early 1990s.
