All of your communications are monitored. Primarily by AI programmed to differentiate between harmonic tones. Depending on the words said and the words around the flag word your "case number" is directed to systems that perform finer and more exacting assessments of your communications. Finally, if you have breached securities by advertising your intent, your "case number" ends up in the workload of men and women who's job is to correlate your website visits, most common phone calls incoming and outgoing, email messages, facebook posts, myspace updates, twitter feed etc.

One of the reason our government is pushing "New Media" is to further encode us into a massive program, only using the tools designed by (and in turn, for) intelligence agencies.

First Method
Call 202-543-9994
Listen for a steady monotone signal with no interrupts. That means you are not being tapped. If you hear any interruptions in the signal tone, then you are being listened to.

Second Method:
Call 101028817709889664
They will first repeat the phone number you are calling from and then repeat a bunch of zeros. The number at the end of the zero’s is what is important. If it is a 1 – you have never been tapped and are not presently tapped.
If it is a 2 it means you have been tapped in the past but no longer are tapped.
If it is a 3 it means you ARE being tapped presently and you need to be careful what you say over the phone.

Also, you could try an address phone tap prevention.

You will eliminate your chances of having your privacy invaded via phone tapping , with the use of a phone tap detector. This is small electronic device that you can easily connect to your LAN line . The device will alert you by red or green light indication whether or not someone else is listening in on your phone call . You can purchase a phone tap detector online for around $10-$30 on Ebay.com or Overstock.com (See resources section below for more)


Hope this helped! This is just information I got off of other websites, so hopefully it works. Good luck!

Also, here is a thread I found. I thought what sodfamily had to say was quite interesting and related to you, so here you go

Or, you could just tell someone, (oh, your grandma for instance) that you have the leaked documents and you will be posting them online this evening at 7pm and see if anyone shows up.

Grandma will wonder what the heck you are talking about, but she will just attribute it to the generation gap.

And on a more serious note, I suggest you read this article, according to which the numbers you can call are not really methods to tell if you line is tapped. Common sense would tell you that if it were that easy, phone taps would never work.

First of all, some people will tell you that there's a phone number you can call that will tell you if your phone is tapped. People email these numbers to me all the time. They say that you call it and you'll hear a contant tone. If the tone does a certain thing, your phone is tapped and if it does something else, your phone isn't tapped. This is stupid. Those tones are called "sweep tones" and they're used by phone company technicians. They have nothing to do with tapping anyone's phone.

How can you tell if your phone is tapped? Easy.

Do you have a phone? It's tapped.

Seriously. Your phone service, regardless of their security promises, works hand-in-hand with the Federal Communications Commission (the FCC). The FCC, in turn, works hand-in-hand with Homeland Security.

You can just take it for granted that somebody is eavesdropping on your conversations, whether on landline or cellphone.

In the same way they monitor the Internet for written occurrences of "bomb" and "jihad" and "Obama sucks," the Federal Government monitors telephone and 2-way radio traffic, as well — listening for utterances of "bomb" and "jihad" and "Obama sucks"... Of course, the Feds will indignantly deny it, but if you press them they do admit that they have the advanced capability to eavesdrop on a billion individual channels or more. The "leash" restraining them, they say, is THE LAW.

Hyuck hyuck, yeah RIGHT.
That's a good one.

So, you can just take it for granted that your phone is tapped.

Wasn't there an article that stated that they can listen to any cell phone call, except if you take the battery out.

My mom worked for AT&T for 30 years and said there is absolutely rooms that are off limits to everyone.
That's not even going in to the underground levels of the building. But I guess this could be for keeping communications going in the event of a catastrophe.

I have equipment that you can tap/detect taps on landlines with. I've been trying to get rid of that thing for years. It's virtually worthless today with cell phones.

You could look into equipment that detects a tap.

Actually the microphone can be activated and any conversations taking place in range of the phone can be monitored. Without making a call. Taking the battery out is the only defeat for that.

My answer is this:

Who is doing the tapping?

If the answer is some of the people I used to work with, the answer is that you simply WILL NOT KNOW! The tapping does NOT have to occur within your telephone, or even in the telephone line running to your house. There will be NO EVIDENCE that your line is tapped, and only they could do the type of checking to find out that your phone is tapped.

That is life in the 21st Century, people!

(Actually, that was even life late in the 20th Century)

If it's the Feds, you won't know, and the "magic tapping numbers" aren't going to tell you anything either.

Local cops often use direct taps, which you can spot with an impedance detector.

But the Feds can just order the phone company to copy the phone traffic at the switch. When you call out, or someone calls in, the switch will ring a phone at the FBI office and your conversation will be available to the agent. No clicks, no pops, no breathing on the line, no impedance tell-tales, nothing. You just won't know. It's part of CALEA, and one of the the relevant standard documents for it is J-STD-025B. They can also get the cell network to do the same thing with cell phone calls.

BTW, why do you think those "tapping detection" numbers are actually anything of the sort, other than people have echoed it all over the net? I could put a number on that just beeped at you like that and say it meant anything. If you don't know who it is and how it works, and it sounds fishy to me, I wouldn't trust it at all.

Originally posted by cheshire cat I mean, my cell phone bill is becoming outrageous.
There are a lot of weird things going on with my line and the telephone company thinks I'm down right nuts.
I've even bought more expensive phone sets, and replaced all of the jacks without any relief.
Arghhhh...


So... ummm what exactly are you doing that warrants them bugging your phone lines?


You better read up on ECHELON/MOUS Intercept Stations


But heck the internet is full of sites showing any body how they can get simple software to tap any cell phone. Great if you want to spy on your teenagers


Tap a Cell Phone


Here is a good video showing how spy phone software can be used to tap a cell phone. While watching this video, keep in mind that all the features demonstrated in this video are available for most of the popular smart phones sold today. The list includes Android, BlackBerry, iPhone, Symbian, & Windows Mobile. If you've ever wanted to see how to tap a cell phone, you'll get to see spy phone software in action. You'll also see a variety of spy phone companies in this video, but only MobiStealth or Spyera offer spy software that enables you to tap a cell phone.

The other products shown (bluetooth spy software) not only don't enable you to tap a cell phone, but they don't work. Enjoy the video.t




So save your money and use the land line phone Just don't talk about bombs

There is no way to tell if your phone is tapped these days. It is done electronically, over the Teleco Switch/Soft Switch. There is nothing mechanical introduced into the network to do this.

Hope this helps.

a reply to: Mikomi

The new Smart TV's I hear can even watch what you're doing! I know when I worked for a Federal agency they had people come in to install new equipment, and a few days after that the boss braggingly told me that she could see everything that I was doing at my desk even though her office was on a different floor. And yes, when our phone calls were being monitored there was a definite echo on the line.
