Spy on Conversations with your Mobile Phone

I guess there wouldn’t be anyone on this planet who wouldn’t love to get hold of some James Bond Gadget. Unfortunately, such Spy Gadgets are seen only on movies, not at consumer stores. So even if you want one, it would be hard to find one.

There is an easy way out. Why don’t we make one? Here is how you can make a Listening bug that lets you listen to hidden conversations! No, you don’t need to know any electronics to do this. Just some gadgets that you already have will do it for you!

Making Your Own Listening Bug

Spy GadgetsYou will need these stuffs to make your Spy Gadget.

  • Any Mobile phone!
  • A headset that works with your phone.

Now in three simple steps, you are going to have your own Spy Gadget!

  • Plug the head set into jack.
  • In the settings for the enhancement (must be somewhere in the settings menu), select the ‘enhancement in use’ as headset and enable automatic answer so that incoming calls are automatically answered.
  • Set the ringing volume to zero and the vibrating alert to off so that the phone do not make any notification when a new call comes. Make sure that the phone is always quiet.

To hear conversations secretly, hide the phone somewhere in the room. The microphone of the headset has to be kept at a place where it won’t be noticed but can catch voice signals. Inside pots, below Sofa’s and behind curtains are some areas that you can try. Remember to completely hide the phone from view so that no one would know when a new call comes.

Now, call your hidden phone from some another phone. As the hidden phone is set to automatically answer, it will be picked up automatically and you can listen to the conversation!

# Ideabox:

  • If your phone is a smartphone (like a Nokia E51) install some call recording software. This will give you a recording of the conversation for later use.
  • Use a dedicated SIM on the phone so that none other than you know the phone number of the hidden phone. Else someone who might call you will also hear the conversation

Note: Use this responsibly and at your own risk and never attempt to implement this anywhere that can get you into any legal issue. You can easily get sued with a ‘Violation of Privacy’ clause, so save this idea for the safer sides. 😉

Divi WordPress Theme - My Review

Divi WordPress Theme
Divi is a WordPress theme that web designers do not want you to know. It comes with a drag-and-drop theme builder. You can build beautiful looking unique websites without touching a line of code. Just choose from one of the many pre-made layouts, or pick elements and arrange them any way you like.

Divi is every WordPress developer's wet dream. Surprise your clients with neat responsive websites and have fun building them.

Divi comes from Elegant Themes. If you enjoy building websites, you *need* an Elegant Themes membership. 87 beautiful themes and 5 plugins for the cost of less than a candy-bar each!

Note: I am an avid user of Divi myself and this is a honest review. I wouldn't recommend something that I do not personally find amazing.

  2. George says:

  3. Amal Roy says:

    Nice trick. This can be fun while working out with friends. I liked it really. i have only seen similar kind of things in only cinemas. Now we too can do this. Thanks for the trick.

  4. Nigel says:

    Dude, haven’t you posted this on your blogspot address once? There are people who’ve followed you from long.

    • Ya, you got me!
      It was once there on my Blogger Blog. But then i had very few audience. This was an original idea of mine and I had posted it to some forums too. I was getting good response even till last month. So I thought of moving it in here!

      Thanks for being a part of me for long time dude, I never thought anyone would remember me posting it there. As you said once day, God really gave you good memory! Kudos

    Okay. LOL I have to say that this particular tip is one that I hope I don’t have to do, but then again, I have two teenagers. LOL So far I have given them their privacy, but if there is ever a situation where I feel I need to be a spy, I won’t hesitate to be one. What you’ve described here seems to be easy to implement – which is scary in itself. LOL It really is fairly easy to spy on people, it seems. They did a good job of spying on Blagojevich (here in Illinois) and now he’s out of office. LOL Once again, I have to congratulate you on your easy to follow instructions for those of us who would otherwise have no clue. With your detailed, easy to follow instructions – anyone who can read – can do it.

    • So you are going to spy on your kids? Lol, I guess your kids are smarter to detect this! I dont think you will get thrown out of office, if you use this. Blagojevich should have used this, too bad that he doesnt read my blog 😀 😉

      Glad that you liked it 🙂

    I saw this in a movie. The villain there successfully implemented this method till the climax but since he is a villain you could guess what had happened.
    I worry if same happens to me 😀

  7. Hari says:

    Great trick! Has worked for me. I’ve used it LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG back… some three-four years ago, methinks. 😀 I’d read it online, and tried it out on Dad’s (I’d inherited it back then) 3310. 🙂

    • You still have that 3310? I moded mine and had posted it here once. Whats the status of yours..?

      Btw, I had posted the same post on Blogger LOOOOOOOONG time back, but we never knew each other then, right? So someone else have already said this one 🙁 I swear to God, this was an original idea, Great men think alike, I guess. lol

    • Oh boy, I am not a secret agent. Don’t know how to do all that mate, sorry. I think you should contact a marriage agency; usually they do all the phone tapping stuffs. Sorry there.
