Well, what comes to detecting the state of encryption in GSM networks
with Nokia Network Monitor, you must remember that
 - if there's no call in progress, it claims that there's no
encryption on even there really is encryption on in GSM network
- and that Nokia Network Monitor is not reliable, it's known to give
false positives
So if someone claims that encryption is off just by detecting it with
Nokia Network Monitor, don't trust him/her.

Especially if the source is MuroBBS... ;-)

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.
:D

Yes, I have all of these related forum posts handling the use of Nokia
Network Monitor as
printed versions.
