It's physically impossible to run devices without current unless it's in the mechanical domain. If any of this is true it means the phone is in a sleep state, plus the cellphone company's phone is either reverse engineered, schematics were stolen, or the cellphone company was working with them.

It's not different then a regular wiretap, just done in a different manner. As a member of the US intelligence community, I can say with certainty that we quite frankly aren't interested in what you have to say about your girlfriend. There aren't enough of us and there are too many of you all to be able to monitor every phone conversation. We don't live in a dictatorship, the world isn't turn Orwellian/1984-esque, we have legal defenses against surveillance of anyone with no impunity. We can't just do anything we want, we have legal guidelines and channels that are very strict towards this kind of surveillance.

They don't care about what you as a law abiding citizen are doing that might not be so moral. They are using this is protect you from the big bad boogie men that could pose a serious threat to society. And they are doing this all with PERMISSION in the form of a warrant. They get warrants for traditional "bugging devices" this is just a safer, more reliable method. These mobsters just weren't as smart as the Jihadists, they know to take the battery out or have stopped using them all together.

If your cell phone is turned off like they require you to do on a plane than this is impossible. in order for the cell phone to recieve a command from a cell network (the only network the cell is programed to work on, ex, att, verizon, tmobile, etc) the cell phone needs to be powered on and registered with the network. If its not registered then it cant be contacted because no one knows where to send the commands and if its off then its not processing data recieved from the antenna. But lets say you have a flip phone and you close the cover, then this is totally possible considering the phone programing will allow the commands to change settings. I would have to say 99% of phones wont and no the FBI cant over ride the programing wirelessly because they cant access the program files through the cell connection. on the other hand 100% of phones can be reprogramed using a direct connection such as USB or serial connections. So listening through a cell phone is possible but not without actually having the phone in hand to reprogram it. so as long as you bought your cell from a provider (because they wont put this ability onto your phone because it is agenst the user end agreement of the major cell companies says they cant) and no one has stolen your phone then your fine. and powering the phone down leaves you just as safe as taking the battery out.

No American speaks a second language therefore the FBI won't understand you, hahaha. Just learn to speak a foreign language if you’re a criminal.
