please delete

I was just coming to post the links to show what I was talking about and the ACTUAL cases this was used in ,but it seems to be an amusement for some so I am done.I was posting about a technology I didn't know existed and wanted to share ,not become someone to laugh at. I have never been mean or unkind to anyone on here and I NEVER will be so time to move on.

Re: BEWARE of your cell phone!!!

How can they use your phone to do this if your phone isn't being used? I mean it doesn't make any sense that they can tap into your phone and listen to a conversation via your speaker phone or something.

Re: BEWARE of your cell phone!!!

Good thing that most of my conversations consist of "I'm at the store, do you want me to bring anything home for your lunch tomorrow?"

If your phone is connected to a network (verizion,sprint,ect) they can access it through the network and then it basically works as a tap and transmits any information it picks up just like a microphone.

Mine too or "what time are you coming home?"Like I said before this doesn't affect me ,but it concerns me that this is going on and for the most part there is no protection against abusing this.

i saw a story on 20/20 or dateline or some similar type show where a woman and her daughter were being stalked through their cell phones somehow a guy got some software that he could use to control their phones online from his computer, they got new phones but the harassing never stopped...he was taping their conversations, speaking up in their conversations, and of course texting and calling them...it was really freakin' creepy i'll see if i can find the story online somewhere

ETA: here's a similar story http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,286440,00.html and http://www.computerworld.com/s/artic...in_your_pocket

Re: BEWARE of your cell phone!!!

Scary...check this out...
http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Cell-Phone-Wire-Tap

I coudn't find anything about being able to do it with the phone not activated. I can't imagine that a court would uphold this....i.e. allow this as permissible without consent.

Re: BEWARE of your cell phone!!!

IIRC, this still falls under the standard wire tapping and surveillance laws. So they'd have to get a judge to sign off on a warrant to show the network to make them do this, meaning that you'd have to be a suspect in a crime. Otherwise it's highly illegal. So, no, I'm not too worried. Mind you, I also don't own a cell phone for completely different reasons, so I'm not sure how much weight that has.
