Can cell phone conversations be tapped?

Yes, even the new digital cell phones can be tapped if you have the right equipment, but it takes fairly sophisticated and expensive technology that is highly illegal. (Older analog cell phones are much easier to tap but it’s still illegal, and there are fewer and fewer of those phones every day.) In other words, while most criminals probably wouldn’t have either the means or the reason to tap a cell phone, various agencies of the government can and have. (It’s easier for them; they can require the phone company to cooperate.) You can read a little more about the technology here: http://www.spygadgets.com/…/…hone-tapping.

Yes and not only that your cell phone can be used to ease drop on you when you are merely in the vicinity of the phone even when the phone is turned off. The feds used this type of ease dropping to listen to conversations some folks who were convicted of organized crime.
