    Google was advertising something to track someone elses phone a while back. I don't know if it was like this youtube video but i'm starting to think google is afiliated with the devil.

    With the right equipment your phones can be listened in on and not even violate the law. :mad:
    If you use a cell phone or even a wireless phone at home (land line) your calls can be monitored with out a warrant. They are considered public air waves and anyone private or Govt. can listen in freely. You have no right to privacy if you are using public broadcast airwaves.... :eek:

    It's my understanding that phonetrace.org is a gag site that takes people to dirty pictures? Anyway, I use this one to track cell phone locations:

    Wow, I want to say that I'm not suprised, but I am.

    973, you hit the nail on the head with what I quoted above.

    While one can monitor cell phone transmissions, one cannot record and publish or share those conversations without a warrent for law enforcement purposes. Unless you have the permission of BOTH parties.

    Of course doing so without a warrant issued by a judge in a court of competent jurisdiction is a felony under the Eavesdropping, Wiretapping, and Electronic Surveillance Act. Both federal and state. (Remember Linda Tripp?)

    The gov't has been able to trace cell phones for years. Why do you think ALL new cell phones have been required to have a GPS tracker in them for the past few years? So the cops can track down your cell phone if it's stolen? Yeah right, does that even happen? The proof as to the reason is in the fact that the phone won't work without the GPS locator in it.
