Cell Phone Bugs

Cell phone bugs, and/or roving cell phone bugs are hot in the world of bug detection. People contact us every day about the possibility of their cell phone being bugged. Sure, some of these people are just paranoid, but with the NSA spying on American citizens, and computer hackers setting their sites on cell phones, who isn't paranoid these days?

Can a cell phone be bugged? In short, yes. Actually, any transmission that is sent through the air can be intercepted. While not going into the technicalities of cell phone bugs, I will say this: If you don't want the world to know about something you say, don't say it on the telephone. And I mean landline, cordless phone, or cell phone. However, it's always good to have your phone inspected.

That's why Sherlock Investigations is offering to check cell phones for bugs. The way it works is you overnight your cell phone to us. We'll check it out electronically and physically, and send it back to you by Federal Express, along with our inspection report. Sure, you'll be without your cell phone for two days, but when you get it back, you'll know whether it's safe to use or not. You can't go wrong. For pricing, and our mailing address, contact us at, or 212-579-4302. It's better to be safe than sorry.
