Did You Know the Gov Can Listen to You Even When Your Cell Phone is Off? #Smartphones

Did You Know the Government Can Listen to Cell Phone Conversations Even When Your Phone is Off?  

Cell phone users, beware. The FBI can listen to everything you say, even when the cell phone is turned off. 

A recent court ruling in a case against the Genovese crime family revealed that the FBI has the ability from a remote location to activate a cell phone and turn its microphone into a listening device that transmits to an FBI listening post, a method known as a "roving bug." Experts say the only way to defeat it is to remove the cell phone battery.

"The FBI can access cell phones and modify them remotely without ever having to physically handle them," James Atkinson, a counterintelligence security consultant, told ABC News. "Any recently manufactured cell phone has a built-in tracking device, which can allow eavesdroppers to pinpoint someone's location to within just a few feet," he added.

The court ruling denied motions by 10 defendants to suppress the conversations obtained by "roving bugs" on the phones of John Ardito, a high-ranking member of the family, and Peter Peluso, an attorney and close associate of Ardito, who later cooperated with the government. The "roving bugs" were approved by a judge after the more conventional bugs planted at specified locations were discovered by members of the crime family, who then started to conduct their business dealings in several additional locations, including more restaurants, cars, a doctor's office and public streets.

"The courts have given law enforcement a blank check for surveillance," Richard Rehbock, attorney for defendant John Ardito, told ABC News.

SmartphonesJudge Kaplan's ruling said otherwise. "While a mobile device makes interception easier and less costly to accomplish than a stationary one, this does not mean that it implicated new or different privacy concerns." He continued, "It simply dispenses with the need for repeated installations and surreptitious entries into buildings. It does not invade zones of privacy that the government could not reach by more conventional means."

But Rehbock disagrees. "Big Brother is upon us...1984 happened a long time ago," he said, referring to the George Orwell futuristic novel "1984," which described a society whose members were closely watched by those in power and was published in 1949.

The FBI maintains the methods used in its investigation of the Genovese family are within the law. "The FBI does not discuss sensitive surveillance techniques other than to emphasize that any electronic surveillance is done pursuant to a court order and ongoing judicial scrutiny," Agent Jim Margolin told ABC News.

My nephew got a brand new Smartphone the other day. My whole family thinks I am cRaZy, nothing new realize, because I refuse to have in-depth conversations when this plastic spy machine is in the room. The biggest argument I encounter is, "if you have nothing to hide, why do you care", and my response is unequivocally, "because it is an infringement of my rights"!

SmartphonesThose of you who have followed me for any length of time are well aware of the fact that I flat out refuse to carry a cell phone. Now I have carried one in the past, a few times, but every time I do I learn something new that makes me disgusted with the thought of owning one of these over glorified leashes. The above article is one more example of why a Smartphone will never grace the bottom of my overpriced purse or the inside of my lint filled pocket. No one has the right to listen to me unless I know they are doing so and if someone infringes on that right you'd better believe I will fight it tooth and nail!

I know the majority of us have nothing really worth listening in on, and in today's YouTube Generation it is assumed by many that no one has privacy rights of any kind afforded to them anyway. Just for "fun" though, consciously behave as if the entire world could access where you are and what you are saying at every moment of one full day. See how that effects your behavior. Are you ready to throw away that Smartphone yet?
