Can A Pre-Paid Cell Be Tapped?
Posted 12 October 2008 - 02:19 PM
Now my question is, does anyone know if that's true? It seems like if the government wanted to tap a phone, it being pre-paid wouldn't stop them, especially with all the money at thier disposal?

I dont know if they can pinpoint a pre paid phone, but again, they wont know its yours since no personal info is related.
My senior year of high school, some kid called in a bomb threat on his phone, they knew he was on the school bus.

Lol now that just sounds silly:rolleyes:
Its the alarm feature, you can turn your phone off, and then it'll turn on automatically at a given time, because its not completely off. They can be set to listen to things through the microphone you talk into, even if you don't have a call going. I doubt they'd use that if you weren't plotting against the government or running a massive drug ring though.

You can toss it and the warrant is wasted.

They somehow pulled their calls from the cell phone towers on the show 'The Wire' but I wouldn't be too concerned about it unless you are some kind of huge kingpin.
Do you realize how many people smoke pot? Unless you were dealing out huge amounts, I wouldn't be too concerned.
