i am curious is there something that is specifically happening with your cellphone that makes you think this might be happening on your phone? as far as i knew there was no way to "clone" of "hack" a verizon wireless phone at least thats what i have been told.
First of all, that is not the solution. I accidentally pushed the mouse. Anyway, I know for a fact that this is true because I have seen it with my own eyes. Do a little research and find out yourself, I am just trying to let people know the truth since these cell phone companies are trying to keep it under raps.
Me & and friend have LG's and recently both of our phones have started acting crazy. Turning themselves off, being in a completely different screen than the screen it was left in, feeling warm to the touch while sitting idle, making crazy popping noises, certain settings have been changed, and the password protect for email got turned off mysteriously.
My point is that this is for real and all cell phone users need to be concerned. We have to get firewalls, spyware, & antivirus available for our cell phones stat!
I can't tell if this is a fake poster or not.Message Edited by vztelecom on 04-22-2009 08:45 PM
Remember that ALL activity geets logged into the SWITCH. That is how cloning gets tracked. So even if someone was listening, all a tech would need to do is look at the log in the switch and check the esn/mdn/mins of the hanset and the tower cell id where the calls are being originated/listened from.
Currently there is no spyware for standard phones at all. As for PDA's there have not been any reports to my knowledge of any working spyware applications. Due to the nature of VZW handsets things cannot be simply installed if it is a standard handset.
As for PDA's there are programs people may install on them to allow the tracking and such. As long as you do not install this nothing will happen like this.
I do not believe that you are crazy as it can be a serious concern to anyone to have a phone act erratically. Have you had your phone checked to see if a software update might be available?
I do not know what type of phone you do have but there is truly no reason for alarm as far as spyware as of yet. Who knows what the future will bring though.
Okay, I'm not going to go back and forth with this conversation because I know what I have seen and heard. I know that it is real and it is here now. This is not something that "may" happen in the future. If it makes you and others feel better, we can all pretend that this doesn't exist! I guess I should also believe that cloning phones isn't possible either.
Its all good. Just thought I would pass on some information for people who have never heard of this spy technology. Thanks!
I am not saying that this does not exist, I am saying that unless your installing a program that has it (which if there are there are not many of) you could not possibly get it on your handset. Furthermore, the only way it could happen is on a PDA/Blackberry device if it were to happen.
So to avoid unwanted software only download and install from trusted sources. There are tracking methods for ALL information sent/recieved from a device also so if spyware were to be contracted and you worried that its doing things it would show up in a ton of logs that would show these signs.
Again, I am not saying that it does not exist just not on the scale that you seem to be implying.
Keep it under raps? lol...
But this is possible...it's more of the hacker level calling microsoft insisting someone is hacking their computer...they will think your crazy but it's possible and not that hard.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
