This was
a the "big" fuzz.

I'm aware about these claims, but Mr. Esa Korvenmaa, spokeperson 
of TeliaSonera Finland says this is not true.

Well, several people in different discussion forums in Finland 
found it out by GSM analysing tools and posted it up. Those tools 
shown that peoples phones (in TeliaSonera network) used A5/0 
cipher, meaning that no encryption was used. I doubt that all of 
them are simultaneously lying and TeliaSonera is telling the truth.
