This is a question that comes on behalf of a number of employees using blackberry curve phones for work.
There has been an unbelievable similarity by a number of individuals on how a conversation over a work phone with fellow co-workers regarding office politics, poor scheduling or treatment by ownership is "showing up". In other words, there is a complaint or critisizm, and then within days there is a change, or better yet a memo/email regarding such a topic solidifying the company positon or standard.
Now I'm old enough to know (and practise) that if you shouldn't broadcast it, or shouldn't mail it, then you shouldn't be discussing it, but some genuine dissagreements about troubleshooting a job related problem have also found there way onto memos.
The question is then: how difficult is it for a tech savy owner to have recently purchased cell phones tagged in a way where the owner could have access to the voice calls being made? We're a small company with fairly trust worthy coworkers, but I'm beginning to wonder myself (luckily with nothing to hide)
Anyone here with cellphone knowledge big enough to crack this theory?
