  1. 1

    Observe to see if the cell phone battery gets drained easily. If the cell battery suddenly reduces in strength and you have not been using it more than usual, this could be an indication that the cell phone is being bugged and your conversations are being overheard. Note that as the battery gets older it loses strength more easily. So if you have had the battery for a long time its quick draining may be due to that reason.(see ref 1)

  2. 2

    Feel the cell phone to see if it is getting warmer than usual. As you talk on the phone, it will get warmer. But if you have not been talking any more than usual and the phone seems to stay warm, that may be an indication that the cell is being bugged. To defeat this problem get a new cell phone.

  3. 3

    Note the sound that the cell phone makes when it is not in use. For the majority of phones sold in the world, including those sold by AT&T/Cingular and T-Mobile, there is a short beeping sound which is heard when the system in being upgraded or other functions are going on and the phone is simultaneously near an audio speaker. If the cell phone, being near an audio speaker, makes a continuous buzzing sound when you are not on the phone, this could be an indication that the cell phone is bugged. To deal with this problem, you may have to get another cell phone and cell number.

  4. 4

    Note if you get cell phone calls from people you do not know and if you are being stalked by a person you do or do not know. This could be an indication that your cell phone has tracking software on it. To defeat this you can simply get anti-cell phone tracking software, download it on the cell phone and follow the manufacturer's directions to remove the tracking software.
