I'm weak on the cell phone scene.  I remember the old analog cell phones were open to easy interception with a simple scanner.  The same with cordless home phones.  There were restrictions later to prevent the majority of scanners from working on those bands.  

However, I thought that when things went digital, it wasn't a trivial as it was before.  Regular scanners couldn't listen in onto the digital calls.  You have to have hardware to translate that to understandable language.  So you're not going to usually have random joe schmoe listening in vs. being targetted by people who's jobs it is to listen in on your calls.
