Looks like we need to come up with personal cryptography systems with our friends.
Imagine how pissed the Dark suited man would be if he could no longer interpret each message being sent over the air.
I don't really think all that much monitoring is going on anyway. I've said many things that probably would be viewed as terrorist or unpatriotic through text and on cell phones. I guess none of them were all that important to TPTB.
I do think the answer is in an mobile app cipher program.

Cell phones cannot directly connect to each other and won't for many years to come. Simply because phones cannot find a single phone, the signal is sent to the tower and since both phones have been "pinging" this tower the tower knows where to send the data.
Sorry if this is hard to understand.
Basically, without the cell phone tower then the receiving phone cannot be located which opens up possibility of failed messages and someone capturing the sent data. Cell towers are an old world GPS basically, The sending phone knows where the tower is located from "pinging" it and the tower knows where the receiving phone is and then can direct the data better instead of broadcasting it(like TV).
Not a conspiracy it just depends whether or not the company is corrupt or not.
Serval Batphone A group of researchers has managed to get phones working in the remote Australian wilderness using a new system that lets ordinary phones communicate without phone towers or satellites. It’s software that allows mobile phones to work without phone towers, or anything else for that matter.
You want to know what I think? I think all this technology is a complete bloody nuisence and I can't think for the life of me why I got sucked in to it like everyone else. I still recall the days we had no technology and my milk was delivered to my door in glass bottles; they were the best years of my life!!!

The most irritating part, however, is that a lot of this technology they put out is absolute mindless, unnecessary crap, that people are suckered into thinking they can't live without. MP3 players? iPODS? Video games? We don't need this junk.
