    Do you think there could be someone listening to your conversation at any time?

    from what I understand they have computers listening all the time for "catch" words and phrases. It would be impossible to listen to everything, but, to answer your qquestion, NO privacy.

    a simple scanner will pick any cell or cordless phone; thats one way. next would fall under homeland security where key words and phases are monitored by supercomputers that zero in on such conversations that are viewed as a threat.... u plannin something?lol.

    Just think about it. How many people would it take to monitor all the cell calls today? Hell, half the population would be employed. I have 2 scanners in my home and neither one will pick up cell phones. Why not? Because cell phones operate on microwaves, while cordless phone use a radio frequency between the handset and base. That's what you pick up. And I can garauntee thye phone calls I pick up are not interesting at all.
