Question about Car Audio & Video
The answer is NO. Some Older scanner models, built before 1994, were able to be frequency "modified, or Restored" to hear the older obsolete "analog" cell signals. All the Current New scanner models sold in the USA, by law, have the cellular Frequencies Permenently Deleted from their Internal chips, They aren't "hidden" in there, so they can't be "restored or modified", & these older modified, or "export" models were receving only the now obsolete "analog" phone signals. ( Older Scanners that could be "modified", were actually being "UN-modified", as they were built with these frequencies, & then "blocked").
Also, Remember, since ALL newer cellphones are iDEN, CDMA, LTE or GSM "Digital", even these older, or export model cellular frequency-capable scanners simply can't "hear" any of the current Digital cellphones, even if tuned to their frequencies.
Hope that helps.
