No, it wouldnt turn on. The phone im sure would just stay blank, while the mic started working. You dont need a program on the phone to run it, if the FBI has a problem running it at another location.

Haha that wont make sense to really anyone here, but it makes sense to me. LOL sorry, I just cant explain what im thinking.....

Interesting...there's 240,000 results for the "roving bug" on Google, so it can't be complete BS...

Here's an article about it on Cnet as well:

I believe this, but to me this is an EXTREME violation of privacy and should be highly illegal.
