If you are a criminal, why would you use a cellphone? Why would you use a cellphone on a post paid account? why would you use any of the major carriers? why would you use your personal number? Anyway, very informatiave article nevertheless.

A lot of criminals are not very smart. If they're they'd get a prepaid phone and pay cash so it can't be traced to them

Whatever, police can tap my phone. What are they gonna do? Post it on facebook?

Wrong attitude man. Today it's tapping your phone tomorrow it's searching you with no warrant or locking you up without charging you.

I must agree with you on this one. it goes to show you,though. In the end,corporations will do whatever is asked of them,no questions asked...for a big enough fee.

Idk, this just dosen't really jolt me as a big deal personally. If this is the first step in an ever increasing trend of police harassment thats one thing but, I just don't see the urgency about the police listening in on the conversations of their suspects. It defiantly sounds like it helps them catch criminals and there is no real draw back to it if your innocent. I mean I guess the police can learn you wore the same underwear all week or whatever but, that just doesn't really hit me as police harassment.

I agree but am also not one to give away freedom. For me, who cares if they listen to what i say? I have not a single thing to hide. At least from a government agency. That'd be one boring, expensive wiretap. As a whole, I understand that if we're okay with this, what will they try next? It'll get to a point where i won't be okay with it so it has to stop here.
