I think the issue is that the chance of making it work "perfect" is damn low to impossible.STiMULi said:The phone is on but it looks off.
But I am lying.
BTW if you are getting nitpicky and think I am talking about a RAZR, I am not. I am taliking about a Nokia. No I do not remember what model it was either. But remember I am lying. :roll:
You have brought nothing to the table but an unproven claim while others have given arguments why it should not or cannot work. You have also not countered any of those arguments with (technical) facts, instead you merely claim to know. Therefore you shouldn't be surprised if people doubt or don't believe you.I am still lying...
Ok which phone are YOU talking about? I do not remember the Model of NOKIA I am talking about. It was about 8 years ago.Raccon said:]And that includes any signal to switch on the phone (if it were possible to begin with).
Given that I am pretty convinced you can't trigger the phone remotely since you not only need to "hack" the phone but also the system to make it work.
Actually I do, whenever I can get away with it! Hate the things. Don't like not being able to disappear. I used to be able to say, "unless you have a ham ticket, I cannot be reached."poltergeisty said:
I wonder, how many actually turn their phones off? :lol:

Not while the phone was turned off, though.garys said:Here are some things that I know can and have been done.
FBI was able to turn on the monitor feature in the cell phone installed in car with OnStar.
Not while the radio is turned off, though.Many Motorola radios can be stunned remotely. We all know that. What many don't know is that the radios can be caused to transmit without generating a side tone. This can be done remotely to help track stolen radios.
Something tells me that this is far from being your last time.STiMULi said:OK
For the last time...
You are soooooooooo smart.Mike_Oxlong said:It would be pretty hard to disguise the fact that your phone is actually on and transmitting when the NSA decides to listen to your call. Place it near any audio amp and the buzz will give it away instantly.
And back to the first post in the off-topic rant.STiMULi said:No BS and I am not repeating something I have heard, read, seen in the movies or on TV.
I know of a group that would buy new model cell phones open them, hack them and would learn what it would take to hack. Not just regular hacking like what I did to my RAZR but being able to turn on your phone remotely and monitor your activities and you would have no idea it was on.
Anyone want to guess who?
(No... I am not tellin' though )
I feel cool now too!N_Jay said:And back to the first post in the off-topic rant.
Could it be done, sure, with enough money and planning.
Is it something any normal person has to worry about?
Is it something tossed into the conversation so Stimuli can sound cool?
Your guess is as good as mine.:roll:
