    As someone who works in the telecom testing industry, I can say that camshy and crystal from above are correct. In situations where your voice is transmitter digitally (eg cell phones, VoIP etc), an intruder could make a perfect replica of your voice without being detected. If your voice is echoing (this happens most often on cellphones and voice chats using the internet) it is usually because of either a poor quality connection, or because the speaker on the other end is so loud that the microphone there picks up it playing back your voice and retransmits it to you. This can usually be corrected by various kinds of software solutions. Unfortunately, nothing can be done about poor connectivity except for maybe retrying your call after a while.

    NO! echo is called "slippage" in th telco international. Slippage will be a synchronization problem. Echoes happen at the same time as the hyperlink isn't sync'd correrctly. this happens plenty on VoIP hyperlinks and cell phones.

    no not anymore, new digital technology is soundless and there is no double clicking either. Every form of communication is monitored nowadays anyway, sorted for buzz words by computer and then checked by a techie if need be.
