All GSM equipment comes with built in tapping facilities that can be used
by the operators. If you are the government, you just request it (using
a warrant or a gun)

Though I agree with your "most people are not interesting enough to tap"
argument, saying that you shouldn't be worried, in the light of the US
government doing massive warrantless tapping, and Russia poisoning its
enemies, I have to disagree. There are just as many stupid people in
governments ordering taps because they are overly paranoid, as there are
overly paranoid people thinking the government might have a tap on them.
So yes, the individual tap is not really something you should be too worried
about (esp if you can still post in public mailing lists), but massive
data collection through taps is definitely a legitimate concern.
