Cell Phone Symphony

Improv Everywhere conducts 60 cell phones to go off simultaneously in a bookstore bag check.
Video Rating: 4 / 5

This short video explores ways to determine if your cell phone has been compromised to act as a bug. While it’s obviously unlikely that this would happen to most people, it was recently revealed that the FBI has used this technique, and just as illicit wiretaps are possible, illicit cell phone bugging could also occur. This video is based on Lauren Weinstein’s December 2006 blog entry: “How To Tell If Your Cell Phone Is Bugged” located at: lauren.vortex.com Be seeing you!

    EHHHHH, WRONG! England is the MOST surveillanced (video) country in the world. It is way easier to tap a cell phone than throwing up thousands of video cameras. Don’t assume no one is watching.

    i used to have a T610

  28. VortexTech says:

    @Koppurointi Echo is typically just bad hybrid paths in the network, or timing issues. Echo you don’t need to be concerned about (other than the resulting poor call quality).

  29. wallstreetyoung says:

    OMG! my phone is doing all of the above…

  30. Aldenif says:

    Don’t they have to have your phone in order to tap it, or can they do it remotely???

  31. papo1957 says:

  35. collegeboi317 says:

    @usarocks911 well i think different i think my government and your government tap our phones. think about they have access to the satellite they can tap any call they want. our governments are no different. They all are corrupt thats why the want to force it to be a one world government.

  36. bioshock255 says:

  38. xoxpriscilla says:

    @fst3v0 dude i was totally going to say this…im hella paranoid about everything and anything. this makes it worse! almost gave me a heart attack :/

  39. MarsBar2012 says:

    (resuming) my phone was on text mode as if I were sending a text to someone one I’ve never text before and the message was just this “*” (quotes, asterisk and quotes). I started backtracking, had I had the phone in my purse, perhaps it was crushed against something and the keys were pressed… NO! The steps required to find my phone in that manner would be absolutely deliberate. I know no one who would be interested in ‘spying’ on me. WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!

  40. MarsBar2012 says:

    I decided to do a search of these things because i know my phone well, have had it for three years. For the last three months it beeps as soon as I turn it on, it lights up on its own, I have to charge it a lot more often when I rarely use it (new battery too!) and it warms up. I’ve been suspicious about its behavior until this last strange thing which happened. I took my phone out of its case, and noticed it was on text mode (con’t)…

  41. 55mautak says:

    Stop using cell phone???

  42. Koppurointi says:

    What about the echo sound.??? You know when you can hear your own voice in the backround on phone conversation.

  43. funnyificationify says:
