    I was reading following article and I come up to know about RF(Radio frequency) signals are the medium of communication between connect mobile phone calls.

    Idea came in my mind to have android app kind of RF scanner which secretly eavesdrop on mobile phone conversations around you.

    I know i need more research but i quickly want to know if it is possible with android apps or not ?

    1. Calls are digitally encrypted. You can't just listen in.
    2. Unauthorized wiretapping is highly illegal.

    Even for research reasons, the legality of this would be suspect. Perhaps if performed at a university with a control group that is notified that conversations are being scanned/recorded it could be considered research. Also with government permission. But as a lone researcher? I don't think so.
