Secure Communication

I have been interested and involved with computer security from the early days. I found this news regarding Research in Motion (manufacturer of Blackberry) stating:

"...its technology does not allow any third party - even the company itself - to read information sent over its network."

The article talks about the Indian government's reluctance to allow the widespread use of Blackberries. RIM was quoted further stating:

"The Blackberry security architecture for enterprise customers is purposefully designed to exclude the capability for Research in Motion (RIM) or any third party to read encrypted information under any circumstances."

Interesting news, but in short only text message can be encrypted giving complete privacy.

Is there any possibility that what ever you talk on the fone can also be encrypted, as in security agencies can connect from the main hual and listen to what you are talking about to who may ever you are talking to.....

Now that would be great.
