About: ***Look for new video's and Instructable on the 2nd and last Tuesday's of every month.***

Hear what's going on from 1,000's of miles away with a cell phone. Bug a home, office, or your teens car......

Step 1: What You Need:

1. Cell Phone
2. Headset PLUG IN TYPE (Not bluetooth)
3. Power Cord (optional)
4. A place to hide the phone (sometimes optional)

Here is the video to see how:

>>Plug the Headset into the phone.

>>Now use these settings:
Ringer OFF
Vibrate OFF
Display/light OFF (optional)
Auto answer ONunder headset setting

>>Hide the Cell phone (optional)
If you wish you can have the phone out in the open. (Face down if you phone does not have a display setting.) Say on your desk.

>>Plug in the power cord (optional)
If you would like to bug an area for more than a day, then you may want to plug it in...
USB if near your computer.
Wall Plug if in bedroom, den, or other rooms
12v DC if in a car (Have you ever wanted to hear what's going on in your teen's car on Saturday night)

***NOTE***
If you wish to bug an area for a week or more you may want to go with a mobile prepaid phone (Alltel, Cingular, Tracfone, Net10, T-mobile, Verizon, Virgin Mobile,or Boost mobile)

If you use Boost in a car you got GPS too.....

    sweet im gonna do that to my sister and her boyfriend!

    Cell phone signals tend to disturb car stereo, TV-speakers, Walkman, monitorspeakers etc, so allthough this is a straightforward "hack" it will also be very simple to detect that someone is eavesdropping.

    I have yet to note my cell phone to interfere with other electronic equipment. Those small phones put out less power than a flea fart.

    second lol on flea fart. Haven't head that used on the internet before...

     You only just read it  via the internet. Someday you just may hear it via the internet. :)

    And then... will I be able to taste it?

    Well,when cell phones are about to ring you hear a dudurut dudurut sound from speakers.

    example:
    *keyboard*click click click
    *speaker*dudurut dudurut dudurut dudurut
    *cell* ring ring ring ring ring ring riiiiiiiiiiiing ring ring ring
    And yes,that is an actual ringtone.

    That's exactly what my speakers do. "Dut dut du-dut dut duuuuuutttt" (beat) "Ring!"

    It also wreaks havoc on CRT computer monitors. The image goes wayvy. The screen is fine afterward...

    in other news, flea farts are 90 percent of the worlds population.

    whenever my phone rings it makes my speakers make really weird noises.

    handy for detecting when texts are coming because they make the noise a few seconds before the text comes =]

    mobile (cell) phone signals only interfere with unshielded equipment. most cars have shielded stereo's so the engine doesn't interfere with them. if you wanted to put the phone somewhere near unshielded equipment then putting the phone in a metal case would stop it interfering with other equipment.

    mine messes with the monitor of the comp i used to write this

    unless your bugging a bunch of silly band girls who are trying to prank you...

    thats usually only true for nextel phones..

    Good post! ...I thought that was only GSM phones? The phone above in the picture looks like the Nokia 2865i, which is a CDMA phone. Also, this works very well with free M2M (mobile-to-mobile, available on most phone plans now) as long as you are calling from a phone on the same network/provider.
