The big brother is always listening, no matter how quietly you speak. In case of cell phones, considering the encryption technology used by most of the GMS operators, it is like speaking on a public addressing system.

They cracked the encryption on the 64-bit algorithm. That encryption technique is from the 1980s.

There is a newer 128-bit algorithm, but it apparently has not been that warmly embraced by carriers. I suppose that will be changing quickly!!!
