Another must have bit of hardware is a telephone or a pager. The benefit of a corded home telephone is that police require a warrant to listen to your discussions, however in many cases the comfort of a mobile phone is justified regardless of the additional risk.
Someone told me that all phone discussions are recorded on some government PC system and if police need data they can listen to those recordings without a warrant. (As indicated by the law, you don’t have a ‘reasonable expectation of privacy’ on a mobile phone or cordless telephone, on account of specific scanners that are accessible to the general population.) These recorded discussions couldn’t be utilized against you in court, however may be extremely useful to police to make sense of what you’re doing and who you’re doing it with.
I’ve likewise heard gossip that there are PC programs that always examine wireless discussions, looking for watchwords.
With any cordless or mobile phone, I exceptionally recommend making a guideline to never say much else telling than “Would I be able to come over and visit?” Using codes is an alternative so as to trick a PC program, (e.g. “Would I be able to come get a few treats from you?”) however in the event that human police are listening to your discussions, it would be hard to work out a code that would trick them.
The upside of a pager is that if the police needed to listen to your discussions, it would be twice as troublesome since you’re always using different telephones, yet they can make a clone pager without a warrant and record each number that pages you.
Yet, regardless of where or when or on what sort of phone you’re calling from, never discuss narcotics, and ensure your clients and suppliers don’t either. Maybe you think that phones are not the things which get people busted, however the cops will never admit that that is the how they make sense of everything.
