How To Phone Tap An iPhone
There are numerous ways to phone tap an iPhone, most of which will rely on you downloading an app or piece of cell phone spyware to the iPhone. Obviously, you are looking for a way to do this remotely, otherwise why would you even want to phone tap an iPhone?
Is Phone Tapping an iPhone Legal?
Firstly, I should warn you about the legality of tapping somebody else’s iPhone. If you want to spy on your husband’s iPhone, for example, you need to heed the following. If you do not own or pay for the phone, and if you do not have the other person’s express permission to tap their cell, then you could find yourself in hot water with the law. There are exceptions to the permission thing, but these generally revolve around the safety of your own children and their use of an iPhone. Even so, you ought to check the local laws in your region or state, preferably with a legal expert before you undertake such an endeavour.
That said, it is possible to phone tap an iPhone and there are a couple of general options, depending on exactly what you want to do and how much you are prepared to spend.
The first and priciest way will let you download a piece of software to the phone that will allow you listen in to live phone calls and even turn on the iPhone’s mic to listen in to conversations in a room. You can also now intercept WhatsApp instant messaging with this software as well as intercept emails, see all sms / text messages, view call history and see the GPS location of the phone. If you want the full-on way to phone tap an Iphone – this is the full monty! But it does come at a price. This system will set you back a cool $349 at Flexispy, but they are generally recognised as the field leaders in spy phone apps for the iPhone. With support for iPhone 3, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s, this is the top-of- the-range product for all your phone tapping needs.
The second and cheaper option, which will give you most of the functionality as the above, but without the live listening and bugging facilities is Spybubble. Again, this is a well-respected manufacturer of software that does what it says on the tin. Many folks have found that the text spying and GPS location functions alone are well worth the approximately $50 price tag and often is all they need for the information that they are looking for.
Does Phone Tapping an iPhone Require Jailbreaking it?
In both cases, you will need to download the software to the iPhone, as previously mentioned, so you would need access to the iPhone and the ability to unlock any password or locking code. The download is relatively quick and is like downloading any other app through the phone’s internet capability. However, the iPhone does need to be jailbroken in order to download the software because neither are an Apple approved product. There are links to instructions or directions on how to jailbreak an iPhone on both of the aforementioned sites. It is a pretty simple and common technique employed by many iPhone users that allow them to use the phone on different networks, for example, or to download free apps on Cydia. Many phones are already jailbroken because the user wants to be able to access other apps anyway, but you will need to find this out because both of these programs can only be downloaded to a jailbroken iPhone. It is also very easy to reset a jailbroken iPhone to factory settings, if this is required in the future so there should be no worries about voiding the warranty or anything like that.
Once the software is on the iPhone, you can connect to an online website, unique and secure to you, from where you can see all of the data available and listen in to the device. It’s as simple as that. You’ll have access to all information and events that occur on the iPhone from anywhere in the world, and the user won’t have a clue that you have this spying capability because the software, once loaded on, is completely invisible! This is pretty much the only effective method on how to phone tap an iPhone, so I hope it’s been of use.
