Push to wiretap

News.com: Pushing to wiretap ‘push to talk’

U.S. cell phone service providers are willing to wiretap “push to talk” phone calls, but only one has the technological capability to do so, according to sources familiar with the situation.
“The current technology to tap these calls doesn’t exist,” said a representative of Verizon Wireless, which this week told the Federal Communications Commission that it believes wiretapping laws apply to push-to-talk, a service that lets cell phone customers talk with the push of a button, like a walkie-talkie. “But being able to (wiretap push-to-talk calls) is different from believing we shouldn’t be bound by law to do it.”
