    If they want to get in bad enough, of course. Some activities are better handled face to face.

    ECHELON is the USA's super spy system, it spies on any and all communications forms. Try google for more details.

    let me tell you that if they want to trace you they will
    but if you dont want your self to be trace take out the battary than the phone couldnt be traced
    if you ever wonder what is the blinking lite in the cell phone is the signal that the cellphone send to looking for a reciver/transmitor of your provider

    Its very easy. The provider handles all data from your cellular device. They are aware of and can capture any and all data to and from your device for billing purposes. Law enforcement need to obtain judicial authorization to seize that info. Don't be so paranoid...unless your doing something criminal. If that's the case quit wining..there is a cost to doing business.

    There are whole rooms full of computers listening to phone calls and computer searches all day long. They are programed for key words. For example only:

    if you were to google the book "Catcher in the rye"

    it would send up a marker. since 9/11 the system has been adjusted and has more freedom to listen in for key words also.

    certain books and key phrases are tagged as markers.

    The police can call the cell phone company and with a simple password they can request the gps location or tower in which you are calling from. They do not need a court order for this if they have cause.
    Your gene pool needs a lifeguard

    Yeah they can access your location behind your firewall.


    The police can not just call the phone company and get your location. They do need a court order for any type of phone tap, or information gathering technique involving someone's privacy. Now, if they have reasonable doubt, they'll be able to get the order quicker.


    It sounds like a few conspiracy theorists in here.
