In this day of smart phones it certainly is a threat. None of us think that computer security is a joke, so why should we not be as secure with our phones which probably contain far more sensitive data than our PC's anyway.

So Why have one :D


Because my son gave it to me when he upgraded his handset.

I can fully understand the people who need to be contacted for work - the ones who drive me crazy are those who sit on the bus/train chatting to the person they have just left, or the cheats who who tell their partners they are working late when they are actually out with someone else !

Mobiles phones are a two faced commodity !

Mine lurks at the bottom of my handbag - I think I have only put 20 credit on it in the last year. It only comes out if I miss the last bus home and need a taxi or to send a text.

Mine is encrypted and can do remote wipe if it gets lost or stolen.

So pretty secure!
