It's not just that it's also text messages as well. The story about the text messages made it to the msm. Just because there is news out there it doesn't always make it to the msm. They choose what stories they want to cover.

Here is a better picture of the phone, hope it helps...on carefully looking it doesn't seem like flip though..but I dont know much about them. Perhaps someone who is aware of iPhones can help better.

sounds crazy but true.


You realize this can be done with computers, too? Cell phones are small computers.

I know a few marketers that use pictures of people from facebook, myspace, plentyoffish, etc. for porn banners and advertisements.

They can take your pictures without your consent from those social networking sites, and use your pictures in however shape or form they want, and you can't do anything about it.

In the terms and policies of those networking sites, it's not illegal to have your pictures stolen for ill purposes.

This is why you should NEVER upload or send a picture (whether through internet or cell phones) that you will regret if it ever surfaced in the main stream.

So, there's no evidence, yet a determination that this "phenomenon" is limited to "iPhone companies and applications?"

No there is no determination as of now.

What does that mean? Do you mean Apple and the Apple e-mail client on an iPhone? So, you're saying Apple is engaged in a conspiracy to record the public's racy photos? You have evidence Apple does this, but Nokia, Samsung, Motorola, et al, don't? And is it really the phone manufacturer or is it the service provider?C'mon.

Nppe only so far evidence have been uncovered from the users of iPhone there is nothing certain what future evidence may be revealed from other companies. I did not name any company only presented evidence of what has been revealed. Who knows what all companies are involved.

Uh, I guess I, too, could be wrong. But never heard of an "iPhone flip model." Not sure there is such a thing. Where do you typically get your information?

Not from Fox news for sure

Another suggestion...open a new window and type www.google.com and in search type "iphone flip" it will show you all related information. Hope that helps.

You know what, come to think of it I wonder if this could be related to "jailbreaking" the iPhone.

en.wikipedia.org...(iPhone_OS)


One of the most downloaded apps that is available after you jailbreak is a text messaging replacement. There is a free trial but there is a subscription fee after the trial. You can also buy text messaging "credits" that a usually cheaper than carriers. I wonder since you abandon the T&C of Apple and AT&T (if you are American) if they would "drop" you from being protected from things like information theft. I will actually read the T&C of the replacement messaging service and let people know what I find.

Guy, that is a blog and in it they are pointing out that there's no such thing. It's a joke!

When you google "iPhone flip" you are seeing people imagine what one would look like. And if you read anything on these pages, you could ascertain that.

There is no such thing as an Apple iPhone flip.

This is explains how you come up with your deductions, though.

That's weird 'cos I remember when the first generations of iPhones were released, some people found nude pics stored in some phones. Two days ago I've read a matter published on Terra Portal about a dude that found amateur porno videos in the iPhone he bought.

There is also another texting app called text plus for iphones and i pods. I use it for my I pod, it hides your number and uses your name instead. You can always use a fake name but it makes me wonder if the other people you are texting, if there information is also being stored as well even if they use a text message app from itunes.

Not only was that article about a Helios phone being sent top a particularly rude man instead of his old iPhone but it even states that the flipphone pictured isn't an Apple product of any type.

And whilst this 'anonymous' friend of yours may be onto something about datamining without consent you've yet to provide anything concrete to back up your theory.

Where did you get all these images?

Why don't one of you just call Apple and ask them if its real or not? If not, then just let it go.

Even if Apple did come out with a flip version of the iphone I still wouldn't buy it. My I pod is enough for me when it comes to Apple products.

I already said I am not much into iPhones..so not much aware about the models. You are correct in ascertaining I do not have any concrete evidence to back up my "theory" such as news article etc. well that's a hindrance in conspiracy theories where raw information is used. *shrugs* nothing can be done about it.
Answer to your other query is here here.

omg, this is so my last post on this dubious, at best, thread. LOOK at the picture you posted. first of all, the dates are old. fella, you're best bet is to go to www.apple.com if you have any interest in iphone models! imagine that!

second, in the picture you posted i can read where it says "apple working on iphone flip?" - NOTE THE QUESTION MARK! "patent application hints at iphone flip." "flip has little chance in an iphone world." "iphone flip coming soon?"

how silly. you just don't care, do you?

So in short you've proven that you don't know a thing about what you are talking about here December Rain - you know nothing of phones and cannot provide any 'truth' other than some suspect pictures which could have come from anywhere.

Bravo on being this week's winner of weinerdom! (And it's only Monday)

letting away all the debate of whether certain phones exist or not and such stuff, I can gurantee you that anything anyone sends via internet or mobile phone or similar device (even landline phone talks) can be recorded.

I am not saying that they are recorded, but they certainly can be.

So make sure you do not send anything through such means which you do not want anyone else to know.

The safest way to send sensitive information is through encrypted email. Not the email provider encrypting it, but you the sender encrypting it before hitting send. You can (and should) even encrypt any attachments. Also digitally sign the email so the receiver can be sure that you have sent it.
No one can decrypt an encrypted email except the intended recipient.

To encrypt your email you will need to exchange public keys with those you send emails to. This is very simple to do. You can get your certificates from www.startssl.com... for free. I may add details of getting the certs, installing and so onlater when I have time.
