    The ability to decrypt ECC is like the MasterCard Commercial "Priceless". Successful Intelligence work requires secrecy and so I see no scenario in which any Intelligence gathering body Private or Public would acknowledge this capability. As a rule you assume that you have no privacy and work backward from there.

    Yes but rest assured any organization that has the skillset to write their own OS is not using off the shelf for anything. They do design and build their own super computers from microproccesor level up. They are fully capable of writing NSA BBOS and implementing it on their terms.

    That may be the case, but your calls and SMS messages are run through the carrier. So, who cares how secure your phone is/was/will be. Australian Gov spied on Indonesia's president and VP, and a host of other people. Tracking phone calls and the calls of people who were in communication with them as well. Nokia E90-1s and Bold 9000s.

    Yea BlackBerry has been hacked before. However the question is whether info is being directly handed to nsa being compliant with us courts as many companies had to, or did nsa hack some other way.

    Actually I believe the NSA found some way to get into the Link (BlackBerry Link) because BlackBerry has recently put out a notice about it and have sent updates for Link.

    The NSA has said that AES-256 and ECC are the two most secured encryption keys and BlackBerry uses both. I think BlackBerry should do this because there's another competitor claiming to be the "most secured smartphone" and it also uses AES and ECC.
