I wrote this article on tapping and recording phone calls for fun purposes! Stuff like recording prank telephone calls and screwing with people and stealing credit card numbers and jumping into peoples' phone conversations for fun and profit! It seems like all anybody is interested in is tapping the phones of their spouses or their kids. What kind of person are you to spy on your own kids just because you think they're sexually active!?!! Guess what, moms and dads - teenagers have sex! There have been actual studies and apparently it's a very normal thing. Don't spy on your kids, people. I mean, who's the bigger idiot - the teenager who's living a very normal life by having sex or a parent who's spying on their own kids with phone taps?
And tapping the phone of your spouse? Okay, so that's not quite as messed up as tapping your kid's phones, but still...how about you spend that money on some flowers and a dinner for your spouse instead of a phone tap. Put all that phone tapping energy into spicing up your marriage instead. If there is so little trust in your relationship that you think you need to tap their phones then there's a good chance that you need to get out of the relationship. Find somebody that you can trust instead of wasting all your time being suspicious of someone you can't trust.
In short - good communication with your loved ones will never involve tapping and recording equipment.

Susie from Maryland - 03/08/0608:13:21: Someone actually ran a completely new phone line to the demarc box on my house to the community phone box. The two house phone number we have are now one and the other number doesn't work. The phone company wants to charge us to fix it. Bastards.. someone is using my phone and I can't do a thing about it. I'm about to go to the main box and try to (Somehow?!) identify my phone line and fix it permanently. THose Fuckers!
Innocent from Florida - : I guess my phone is being tapped by the police directly through the phone company. They THINK my husband, who is incarcerated for the first time in his life, who has no record whatsoever, has a crystal meth lab. So they arrested him on some trumped up and some made up charges. One of the charges is a no bond charge. Is it legal for them to tap my line?
Jack from BIG D TX - 03/06/0606:39:53: Can the Feds activate the voice channel on a cell phone on a remote location and listen in a conversation in a room without you knowing it?
Max from IL - 02/20/0611:39:09: i might sound paranoid, but i think that my employer is listening to my cell phone conversations. there are so many strange coincidences that surround my cell phone conversations. i was creeped out so i changed my number. the very next day, the owner's uncle (who also works with me) called my company phone & asked me for my girlfriend's full name.-FOR NO REASON AT ALL! The thing is that my home phone is in my girlfiends name... if my conversations R being monitored somehow, how can i prove it?
Sandy from Idaho - 02/18/0600:56:22: does anyone know how much trouble you can get in if you redord and play to others phone converstations in your own home. Some authorities say its legal, while others say it is not.

Tony from Riverside, CA - 02/15/0613:23:07: Can anyone tell me phone symptoms of a cellular tap at the law enforcememnt level? You guys are a great source. THX
Dude from Delaware - : That crap about your pc picking up and decripting your cell phone waves is crap. You'd need a microwave antenna to first intercept the signal. Then it might be possible, but decrypting 128-bit AES is not an easy feat.
Kay - 02/12/0611:19:24: Please answer this Q: How to know or listen to my friends cell phones calls?

Marisol Juarbe from Florida - July 02, 2006: Can someone tap into my cellphone conversations? It seems like my boss knows everything i say over the phone. I also have at home VoIP. Thank you!
DDR from Georgia - July 17, 2006: Well I work for one of the nationÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s top telcos. Yes, they can observe and trace lines. Yes, if you want it done you better have a court order to get it done. The same goes with most of you network data which is protected federally by CPNI law. Both of the companies I have work with in my career has taken a pretty harsh stand on breaking these laws. I go through training every year on these laws.
Alan Ho Tai from West Palm Beach - August 17, 2006: What about taps on Vonage type telephone computers by the gov't or individuals?
JJ from DC - August 04, 2006: Just so you know, the Radio Shack wireless phone recorder only works with some cellphones. It specifically does not work with Nokia, because their headset jack is not a standard 2.5 mm (two stripe) jack.
ME - August 04, 2006: Depending on the layout/topology of the phone network, it may be possible to check whether or not you are being tapped by government. I used to be able to do this on GSM 5 years ago. What you do is call ur own number from that same phone you want to check. If you get a busy signal than everything is okay. If ur phone is being tapped you get a loopback and you may hear a ring or two, or a different signal depending on the network. This used to work (europe) and may still work in some networks.
Hash from Crenshaw Mafia,Compton,CA - July 27, 2006: Can Someone Trace Your On Your Cell After U Take Your SIM Card Out
Nichole from Houston - July 20, 2006: When a person states they here a different sound on their cell phone when calling certain numbers, it is not because their phone is tapped. When you call from your cell to other people, the call is routed from a phone through the tower to a LANDLINE switch. At the switch the call is diverted back to a landline provider who then routes it to the destination be it a home phone or cell phone. So regardless of what you think, cellphones are not completely wireless, all calls goes to a landline.
DDR from Georgia - July 17, 2006: If the telco cannot provide the recording it is an automatic $10,000.00 fine, if the customer in question has a pic freeze the fine jumps to $50,000.00.
DDR from Georgia - July 17, 2006: Have you ever ordered telephone service that at the end of the order you was transferred to another agent who verified the order? If so that verification portion of the call was recorded. Did you know when it happened? In that case it is federally mandated that the telcos have a third party verify and record that transaction. If you file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission stating the telco slammed your service. The FTC will request the recording of the transaction.
Land Line from USA - December 01, 2006: Actually there are other ways to record conversations. You could run ur phone through the modem on ur computer and download software that records ur conversaions!!!
Josh from Atlanta - November 05, 2006: stephen...try radio shack's website
Lee - October 21, 2006: With the invent of call recording companies, is there a way to verify that an incoming call is not being routed to any other number but the intended reciever.
Chris from Sprint WOrld Headquarters - October 18, 2006: No one has posted here recently but I figured I would go ahead and provie a little bit of insite. I work at Sprint PCS' Corporate Security Office and deal with the FBI, Police etc everyday in reguards to phone records. Just about anyone with any authority can obtain your phone records. A lawyer, clerk, police offer, deputy, whoever, can fill out a simple subpoena requesting anyones records. As far as cell phone taps go, it happens a lot to be honest .
MERY from RI - October 03, 2006: GREAT SITE ,I am aware that there are 3 ways to tap a cellphone, which are using: a PC, a cellphone, and the software.

01/18/06 - gerry mac from syracuse: phone tapping is some good fun.....Redick sucks
01/17/06 - Coach from France: The Radio Shack 43-228 controller requires a tape recorder that has the extra plug, which is the $80 model. The controller itself will not record both sides of a phone conversation at the same volume unless it is hooked up to a casette recorder, so it is useless for phone-to-PC recording. Someone who actually invents a device to go from a standard phone LINE (not handset--who the hell has a handset now?) will make a fortune.
01/16/06 - Prison from PA: I use Vonage as my phone service with the VTECH broadband phone. How can I tap my phone conversations? Ohhhh, by the way, you guys are great!

01/14/06 - Kevin from Syria: Hey, im am so glad i stumbled upon this section. here the thing. my fuckin dad has been tapping our phone line like from 10 years ago. thats no problem because he used to tap mom's phone calls (inline phone casstte recorder)because he hes got this disorder related to being overly suspecious. anyway, now that im 18, first, i busted down his tape recorder and i actually destroyed it with a hammer in front of him and told him to never tap my calls. but it seems like he got another tapping device...
01/04/06 - Contract Developer from Western United States: I have been working with a client on some custom software for them, and now they are unwilling to pay. I wanted to tape my phone calls with them for court evidence, and your website was exactly what I needed! I first investigated federal and state laws, then I spent less than $100 at Radio Shack for some quality equipment and began recording my every conversation with his office. Turns out I probably won't need to take him to court after all, but in case I do, I have him on record! Thanks!

Ihad a scanner (desk set) then and of course a cordless phone. so do ya think she was getting info from him and could he have been recording my calls
12/23/05 - CPJ from Oxford, MS: I have someone who is recording my cell phone conversations and my house phone conversations and sharing the information with their best friend and their mother. It really sucks because this person claims t olove me and trust me but it clearly shows that they don't. I know that the sound data is being transfered somehow to thier cellphone and to their computer. How in the hell can I protect myself from this? Also, how do I get concrete proof? I know they are doing this because they have the balls to repeat things I have said in my conversations.

My email is [email protected] (remove NO and Spam) please tell me any information you know about this.

10/09/05 - someguy from canada: also another thing to consider is what kind of static/interfearance would cause loud clicking noises? why woul ti only happen after something important was said? digital phones are supposed to have little to no interferance from what I was told when they first came out (digital being so much better in quality etc)
10/09/05 - someguy from canada: part 2---> he is 100% sure he is being tapped due to a conversation he had with a lawyer friend of his. His lawyer told him that when doing a case of another indivisual his name came up repeatly. So when people say that clicking noises after exact times and noises during certain conversations are just static they obviosly do not know what they are talking about. Maybe they are law enforcement just trying to put you off. If you have any thought on this please reply :)
10/09/05 - someguy from canada: Ok out of all the comments I have read on this site and other sites on the internet I have yet to read much about goverment phone taps. My buddy thinks he is being tapped by local law enforcement and we talked about it a little. First of all he said when he talks about certain "touchy" subjects he imediately hears some kind of noise (usually a loud click or clicks) and during normal calls to certain people (like me or his girlfriend mom etc) he hears a click within the first 30secs or so. ----->
10/08/05 - winmx from Lower 48 (not sure which): Good article. But why are people so oblivious? - not about taps but just obvilious in general
10/04/05 - Anonymous from Michigan: Employers can monitor your business email/conversations as well as your personal to include websites visited. Sometimes the excuse is confidentiality, and sometimes they are just being nosy.

09/30/05 - Zak from ZaksRealm.com: To DC from NH - That noise you hear every 20 seconds most likely means that the calls are being recorded. I don't think that is legal. Check your state laws, use the link RBCP left (http://www.rcfp.org/taping/). Since you are at work, you shouldn't be making personal calls anyway. =-P Your boss is probably making sure you treat customers well. (or that you're not tipping off the police!)
09/28/05 - SC from New Jersey: I feel that my boyfriend is cheating on me b/c every time I stay the night with him he turns his cell phone off, this just started a month ago and I cant take it.

He has a nextel 850 can u explain how to tap he's cell phone step by step. thank u
09/10/05 - Wayne Harris from Tornto Canada: Recording my EX's phone calls would have saved my house and would have sent her to jail for making false claims to the police. I went to jail for threats I never made and she laughed about it later saying "so I lied to the cops. Cops are stupid, they always believe the woman. Stop taking me to court or I'll do it again and you won't get bail the second time.!!!i

06/30/05 - RB from Washington: Cadence: Cellular systems are 100% digital. You would hear no artifacts if someone were listening in, and the only way that that can be done is via a court order - unless of course a law enforcement agency has invoked the Patriot Act. Then you can be tapped with zero due process... and you'll never know. Have you been doing anything that would get the law on your ass?
06/28/05 - odd from maryland: That radioshack induction tap is great fun, not only can you tap a phone with it, but you can hold it to any source of EM radiation, specifically TVs, monitors, stereo equipment, you'll get some cool, but static-y noise

However I am scared that she might tell him about our conversation. What should I do ? Any suggestions ?
06/09/05 - cellular employee from tennessee: you people are seriously wacked...if your phone shuts off or echoes or does some other random not normal thing...it's probably either A) your shitty phone or B) your cell coverage. And you CAN NOT take someone's sim card and put it in YOUR phone and have THEIR phone still work normally. Do some research before you post "advice."

Well I really wish I could find out if they were "tapping" my phone line, not because im worried about anything but the way they came up on me was really crazy and intrusive. If anyone has any hints RE back. Thanks!

04/02/05 - from kcmo: I could have had my husband charged with a Class D felony at both the state and federal levels after finding the tap in my house. EVERY conversation...each person on the tapes could file separate charges...at up to $5000 apeice at the state level, and again at the federal level. In the meantime, while we are "working" things out...It's serious, and foolish--even as a prank. Know your state's laws--some states allow if ONE party knowledgeably consents. He's lucky...I gave him a warning.

03/27/05 - NewYorker from New York City: I've been getting calls on my cell phone of a threatening nature from a troubled individual who claims to be standing outside of my home. I do believe the safety of my family is at risk. This is following a hostile dispute I had with a local popular pharmacy chain, which resulted in probably the firing of the employee and perhaps even the manager by the regional manager. Before going to the police I'd like to be able to record the caller's voice on my Nextel i90c cell phone for some proof.

03/08/05 - Quincy Durant from MD/VA/DC: Does the phrase "This call may be recorded for quality purposes" announced at the beginning of a workplace phone constitute consent as long as it is used all the time and not intended to get info on a single caller??? This would be the best answere to the problem of getting the other party to consent to recording in states like MD.
03/08/05 - A Parent from Allentown, PA: Any concerned parent knows that protecting kids from themselves is part of the job. If there is reason to suspect a kid may be up to no good, finding out ahead of time could prevent real problems.

03/02/05 - MNola from NO of La: many times when i have been on my cell phone, sometimes i hear a strange kind of echoing noise and then at some point in that conversation, my phone completely cuts out and the person I was talking to hears some very loud noise as if it were like a fax machine noise or something and then their line goes dead as well....do you think I am being tapped? there is a guy I have been seeing on and off who's quite politically connected with family in legislature& police connections...
03/01/05 - telephreak from right outside your window: Digital Cellphone Eavesdropping and Monitoring is possible by using a Digital Data Interpreter (DDI), a Scanner and a P.C. The DDI interprets the digital signal from the scanner, then through specialized software. it converts the digital signal to voice.This is how Gov't Agencies conduct surveillance on people they've targeted for investigation. The DDI is not (generally)available to the public, but there are ways of obtaining one.

02/15/05 - Xero from : install a brand new phone line, routed from another house (or from their box etc...) and then we could cancel our second line aand have two seperate lines that both connected at 56kbps. You could try something like this, or just tell the phone company your phones have been acting weird and you'd like a tech to come down and look at your phone lines. He might be able to find something....Hope this helps....
02/15/05 - Xero from : Hey Kelley from home....I'm not sure how well this would work (and anyone can feel free to criticize me for this) but back when we used Dial Up to connect to the internet we had two phone lines (One for making calls and one for the internet. This split our connection on the internet down to 28.8kbps or less. We found out that each house in the area had two lines running into our house and if we wanted a thrid line the phone company would have to come down and....continued on next comment.

Sec. 2510 et seq., prohibits the willful interception of telephone communication by means of any electronic, mechanical, or other device without an applicable exemption. In the absence of more restrictive state law, it is permissible to intercept and record a telephone conversation if one or both of the parties to the call consents.

11/25/04 - JW from from Illinois: Continuation for AJ from Ohio...phone lines can also be tapped down the line and therefore you may never find that type of wiretap. Unless you buy a wiretap detector and they can range in price depending on quality. However they are very easy to use and very reliable. Some websites to get wiretap detectors are: spyworld.com, 4hiddenspycameras.com, uspystore.com, just to name a few. Anyway, the first place to check is your apt., then the Telco Room and if need be, buy a detector. Hope this helps.
11/25/04 - JW from from Illinois: Responding to AJ from Ohio...normally, all condos and apt. complexes have a room called a Telco room. This is normally a locked room, but not always...especially if the security there is lax. Anyway, the room has what is called a punch-down block (today called a patch panel) for all the phone lines in the condo. Whoever taps a line in a condo or apt. complex must know the exact lines going to your room. Sometimes they are labeled with the room number on the wires in the patch panel.
11/24/04 - Aj from Ohio: I forgot to mention with the boyfriend listening,I live in a condo complex. Where would I find that little box?

11/10/04 - Deborah M. Koch from Edwardsville, IL: An ex-friend of mine recently knew of a business transaction I was involved in. There is no possible way she could have know this unless she heard a phone conversation. I am puzzled, and want her to know nothing of my business transactions (which are, by the way, legitimate real estate transactions); I want her to know nothing of my life, however, am very concerned, because she knew of something that no one else knew of, except the person I performed the real estate transaction with.

07/25/04 - urineamerica from seattle: continued----- anyway, I am wondering if anybody has heard about this sort of "open switch" bullshit. I am pretty sure that feds are tapping. If you have had a similiar issue, please let me know [email protected]
07/25/04 - urineamerica from seattle: My brother is in and out of prison for a variety of reasons some of which are not known to me. When he is out things start happening to my phone and my parents'. This last time, the day he got out. My dad picked up his phone and only heard static on the line. He called the phone company who told them that there was an open switch on his line and that he had to unplug all his phones in his house for ten minutes and that would reset the switch. The same thing happned to us about 3-4 years ago. ??

04/06/04 - HH from New York: I'm trying to record to my PC (using the line in on my Soundblaster card) with the RadioShack 43-228 recorder, but the level is very very low, with some 60 Hz hum.

04/05/04 - megamanga from Australia: successfully recorded over 150 mad callers, from those telephone salespeople to technical support from my isp :D
03/28/04 - AaaSrv from los angeles: the differance between those two radio shack items that seem simiair is that one of them has to be hooked up between the phone and the jack, the other one can just have a regular line from the jack plugged into it and it will record calls from all the hpones in the house unlike the cheaper one.
03/22/04 - MD from America: The most common VCR tape is 6 hours, however, the 8 hour tapes are quite common, and BASF has even made a 10 hour tape (sometimes found at Tower Records). You can use the standard MiniDisk recorder in LP2 mode for 2 1/2 hours, or in LP4 mode for 5 hours. The Sony MD-Hi uses a different media, and compressed audio allows for up to 45 hours. For portability, plus clean sound, MiniDisk recorders beat tape recorders, unless you desire the auto control switch, which is very useful.

03/10/04 - Dr.Q from ...: lilly, if you want to tap a phone and not get busted then just go tho the green/grey box out side the house unscrew it , take a mini tape recorder with voice-activated on it so it will record when she talks hook it up to the main phone line and come back in when ever... you may need to buy some crap from radio hack(radio shack) but it will pay off you can find most of this stuff here because this site is the coolest !!!
