Hi,

If you are concerned that there may be a wiretap on your line, it is best to contact the repair department at 310-8324 to log a ticket. We would have a tech go out and check the lines and investigate further as needed.

Can you clarify your concerns?

One area of concern is the use of cordless phones. Not all are encrypted.

If your phones are tapped, you'll never know. I'd assume Telus would be legally prohibited from telling you and I'd guess only their legal department would know if it's tapped. If you've done something illegal enough that the cops have a warrant to tap your line, it may be an idea to NOT do illegal things.

 

If you have clicking on your line it could be from a short circuit somewhere or one of the phones in your house.

If you have static it could be the line or if you have ADSL/Optik, it could be a defective POTS splitter.

If it's crackling and it's intermittent you may have a damaged line and water is getting in.

Line issues Telus can usually diagnose over the phone anyways and then get a tech out to fix.

Hope you are NOT using a cordless phone with that landline.

 

Cellular would allow you to skip the landline.

 

BBM would encrypt your activities.

 

Also.... if you have a smartphone.... do you have "location services" enabled?  Certain apps allow you to be tracked (eg Foursquare and other location-based social apps).

 

Then again.... smartphones can be problem too if they installed "Boyfriend Tracker" on it.

Time to get a new phone.
