True or False and Why. Are the first 10-20 seconds of our phone conversations recorded?

My DH and I just had a conversation about it last night. He said that within the first 10-20 seconds people are listening to our conversations. They only hang up if they don't hear certain words. If they hear this “safe” word ten they are allowed to continue to tape you. But then you now have the possibility of being put on a watch list depending on what's said. DH claims that there's a base in Maryland that stores the tapes. Miles and miles of recorded calls.

How true is that?

  • Really? I never thought of that happening. Because of all the "you know what"? What?...I'm lost! I find it impossible for them to tape every single phone call.
