    ok so lets see, n+dogg types in all caps and there is nothing TURBO about him. When you hear things from your 15 year old girlfriends with penises take it with a grain of salt.

    The second post is by a guy that established himself as a complete fucking idiot 3 posts into this website. Let's not even listen to what he says.

    And yeah, recording numbers is a possibility.

    Cant sell phones be listend to over the airwaves or something without a warrant? what you should do is substitute the word graffiti with cocaine whenever talking on a cell phone - that way you'll be in the clear

    dont take this as fact but cell phone frequency bands change every 60 seconds or so from what i understand so in theory its pretty much impossible to tap any kind of a cell phone because they would have to reenter the frequency every 60 seconds. every 5 seconds on the newer phones. thats one reason why the us could never catch osama.
    as far as taking cell phones and the #s in them thats different, one of my friends was being investigated by the fbi for some activist crap and they took his phone and the #s in it. i think thats a common technique among authorities.

    I am pretty sure Mobiles can be tapped, but its whether they can get permission to do so. Usually done on big drug busts.

    Your phone is a tracking device, when its on, it will leave emit a signal to the nearest phone mast. so in a city, this could pin you down to 1 block accuracy.

    Text messages are like emails and can be retrieved at the message service centre, not sure how far messages can be backdated though.

    When you get raided, they will take your phone for numbers and text messages - Don't save phone book names as tags. they can pull the number and retrieve the owner's account details and then proceed to raid their house.

    Mobile phone companies can also, when formally requested give call logs to the 5-0, so in a investigation they can place the times of calls and to which numbers and build up a case against you.

    Be discreet, if you are very active, might be a good idea to chat less about graf on mobile phones or change numbers regularly. Best of all don't give out your number too much, decreases the chances of it falling into the hands vandal squad!

    Ok, here is some info I picked up on cell phone taps:

    you should know that tapping phones without permission is obviously very illegal. Recording a phone call, even your own, is possibly illegal too. This site does not condone breaking and state or federal laws when tapping and/or recording a phone call. There are state laws and federal laws that you should check before you start recording phone calls. A good source for checking this is Can We Tape which is a great guide to state and federal laws.


    The federal Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968, 18 U.S.C. Sec. 2510 et seq., prohibits the willful interception of telephone communication by means of any electronic, mechanical, or other device without an applicable exemption. In the absence of more restrictive state law, it is permissible to intercept and record a telephone conversation if one or both of the parties to the call consents. Consent means authorization by only one participant in the call; single-party consent is provided for by specific statutory exemption under federal law. 18 U.S.C. Sec. 2511(2)(d).


    That's just federal law. Your own state law might have stricter laws on taping. And if you're calling someone in another state, THEIR state might have even stricter laws on it. In the end, if you get into some kind of trouble over recording a phone call, they can use whatever federal or state law they want against you. Even if it's a state law from the state of the person you called and not your own state

    Yes, the government can tap your cellular phone but the average citizen cannot do it. But a few people emailed me to tell me that I'm wrong so I'm going to post their thoughts here.

    From Orm Haka: It's not possible to tap a cell phone, but you can buy a real cell phone with a built-in listening device at good espionage stores. These enable you to listen to everything going on with the telephone. You simply pick one that is exactly the same model and color as the target cellphone, copy all the information into it, put the targets SIM-card into it (and pray the target doesn't know his/her own phone identification number), and you're all set. The price is from $1000 - $2000. The phones are usually Nokia/Sony Ericsson of the latest models. There's also a model where a cellphone has an extra system function for remotely tapping analogue landlines.

    From J: It is possible to tap cell phones. there are different ways. One is using a PC, a cell phone, and the software. The software catches the "waves" over the phone. As you know, today's cell phones transmissions are encrypted. The software decrypts that because the code is a joke. The only problem is to get the software for "normal" users. The trouble for finding that is very high.

    Another thing to note is that you can listen to some cellular conversations with a police scanner. But the conversations you can hear are only from analog cellular phones and not too many people use those today. Everyone has digital cellular phones. Another problem is that you can no longer buy scanners in the U.S. that will pick up cellular frequencies. You'll have to find an old one on Ebay or go to a Canadian dealer. But really, the person you want to monitor will probably not be using an analog cellular phone.
