Perhaps, but I know that security experts and business leaders still do not trust it. I personally have been in a meeting when security in business issues was the topic, and we were advised that you never discuss sensitive business over a cell phone (M&A, contracts, financials, etc). Only non-sensitive material.

The point being, to tap a landline, one must obtain two things - a court order, and access to a specific set of wire pairs (assumption is you already have the tools and equipment).

To tap into wireless traffic, all one needs is the appropriate receiving equipment and the knowledge necessary to scan, filter, and decode - no physical intervention required.

It is too easy for anyone to scan to airwaves unseen by others in the privacy of their home, office, or vehicle - where they can take all the time they need to crack the streams of received traffic.
