Q

Preventing eavesdroppers on cellular calls

I use a Kyocera 2119b on Virgin Mobile via Sprint. I am convinced that my calls are being compromised (eavesdropped). I would really appreciate any suggestions or recommendations you might have including different cell devices or carrier to prevent this.
Based on my response to another cellular security question, this is entirely possible. Without having the proper high-end test equipment or getting your cellular provider involved (good luck), it's probably a losing battle to try and figure this out. I would suggest at least getting a new phone number, if not changing providers or technologies (GSM to CDMA, or vice versa) altogether.
