Hi. Thanks for posting your question on JustAnswer...



What makes you think this is happening?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Well I can listen to beep and a echo and the person who did it told me he dis installed the program from my phone but I don't believe him. Even if I'm talking to someone else about something he comes and ask me like if I told him and another thing my battery discharge right away and there been days that you could see when they calling me that the phone by itself pick ups and hang up
Expert:  Mike replied 6 years ago.
Hmmm... sounds like the FBI might be involved there. I'm not familiar with any high tech tapping of this magnitude. I'll opt out so that one of the other experts can help. Best of luck.

Is this a smartphone ?

First let me clarify that I am in no way affiliated with law enforcement, however, installing 'spy' software onto a cellular device is a federal offense and can lock a person up in jail for up to several decades. The chances of a random person wanting to tamper with your phone in this way takes SIGNIFICANT technical skills and very improbable unless you have some highly classified information listed on your phone which would serve a great purpose to some very high profile people. The FBI and other law enforcement do not install third party software in order to beep into your calls and interrupt you while you speak and randomly power your phone on and off; they tap your phone in order to listen in on your calls without your knowledge. If you are, however, worried that something fishy is going on, you can always do a complete factory restore on your phone which would allow everything on your phone to be removed and restored to factory settings.

 

I hope this answers your question! =D

Expert:  Daniel P. replied 6 years ago.
You won't have to switch phones, you can just perform a reset on your phone. If the guy installed something on your phone then that should take care of it.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
can he be able to hack to someone else phone without having the phone on his hand
Expert:  Daniel P. replied 6 years ago.

Short answer is no.

 

Long answer is maybe, if all the circumstances were ideal. You're connected to the persons network. The person is a HIGHLY trained expert who works for some type of national government. You must be some type of government official or high profile entity. If not, I would say no.
