If any of those were really secure phones, they'd have been raided like Ennetcom were. Blackberry, for example, their master key was held by the Canadian Mounties and used for bulk interception.
As long as we have a security apparatus that sets the agenda in secret and with impunity, its a wild west, and you're on your own.
