for anyone who is potentially a target of phone attack, may i suggest cryptophone. it is what we use, has no backdoors, open code to verify encryption, and is the only safe phone system i know off.
plus, if you dont want to spend £2000, there is a free version for xp.
something that has not been mentioned here is the fact that cellphone calls are regularily routed through unencrypted microwave links, small unknown line providers to keep costs down, and what about your competitors bribing a vodafone employee to forward all your calls/text messages/ voicemail for a few hundred pounds?
it recently happpened to the queen and the royal princes.
my advice is anyone who has ever spoken about a deal worth £1000,000 or more on the phone is asking for trouble. if the phones unencrypted.
*IF YOU ARE GOING TO BUY A ENCRYPTED PHONE, ENSURE THERE ARE NO BACK-DOORS INTO THE SYSTEM, AND HAVE IT AUDITED INDEPENDANTLY. NEVER BUY AN ENCRYPTED PHONE EXCEPT FACTORY DIRECT*. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
