Phone tapping

Paranoia filter: is there a way to see if one's phone line is tapped, without calling the phone company and asking them to come look? I live in an apartment building in Brooklyn and have access to the phone cables outside the building. I'm not particularly paranoid, but I'm having a dispute with the landlord and I wouldn't put this past him.

Dropped call or hang-up(phone and/or mental)

Trying not to be neurotic...I think my guy hung up on me, but maybe it was just a dropped call? Google won't help me distinguish between the two, although it seems obvious to me. The obvious being that he hung up on me. [more inside]

Do you use Virgin Mobile (in the U.S.)? Even better, do you use their Slice phone?

Do you use Virgin Mobile (in the U.S.)? Even better, do you use their Slice phone? All its specs are fine for me; I'm hoping to hear how you like it (especially the sound quality of calls, since the reviews of that are mixed) and/or how you like using Virgin Mobile.

Is Charter's phone/cable/internet package a good deal?

Has anybody had experience with Charter Communications (in western Massachusetts, if that makes a difference)? My wife and I are moving to Hadley in a couple of weeks and are thinking of taking advantage of Charter's bundle (available through the end of the month) of basic cable + high-speed internet + phone service (unlimited calling in US) for $69.97/mo. This seems like a good deal. Anybody have experience with them? And if you live in the Pioneer Valley, how worried should we be about the likelihood of an electricity failure disrupting our phone service?

Smartphone Scrambler?

Is there any program released for Windows Mobile Smartphone (WM5/WM6) that will dynamically scramble my voice in a call? Not looking for call encryption, but the effect in spy and cop movies (most recently, the Departed), where the caller's voice is garbled and robotic, but still intelligible. If not, are there any other programs that do anything remotely similar (or any programs that are just interesting in general)? I have a T-Mobile Dash upgraded to WM6, but any WM5/6 Smartphone programs should work.

I've upgraded from this HTC smartphone, which runs Windows Mobile 4 (I think) to this HTC smartphone, which runs Windows Mobile 5.
