My granny's causing some problems and I was thinking of wiretapping our home cordless phone so I could listen to what she's up to. I went to Amazon to look for telephone recording adaptors but most stated it's not compatible with cordless phone. I went online and saw that walkie talkies share the same channel/frequencies as a cordless phone. However, I called my handphone while performing a channel scan from my walkie talkie, but nothing happens. Anyone to enlighten me?

Wiretapping someone else without their permission is very illegal, some states allow the recording of conversations if one or more parties are notified of the recording, but none allow for recording of conversations without either party being notified.

Nothing Illegal - We do not allow discussions of anything that is illegal within the United States, United Kingdom, or against International treaties. This includes but not limited to: copyright and trademark laws.

Really wiretapping a family member? Is that really a good idea. Try perhaps talking to her?

First allow me to say, I do not support this...

but all cordless phones go into a regular phone jack, you can use that jack with a normal phone

Walkie talkies don't work on the same frequency range of cordless phones.

Certain (or all) DECT (cordless) phones have an encrypted channel. Otherwise it would be very easy to listen to your neighbors conversation ;)

Trueb how inaccurate is it?

Most cordless phones are NOT encrypted, unless you can prove otherwise...

Thanks for all of your answers. I am just gathering answers. Really curious why the net and my experience don't add up.
