Cell phone security: How safe is your information?

These days, Americans are more connected than ever before. Many people never leave home without a cell phone. Experts warn that those who carry so-called "smart phones" may be unknowingly putting their personal information at risk. Mobile devices with Internet access open users to the same security risks familiar to computer users. Someone can secretly tap into a phone and make calls or send texts billed to the account holder. For years, experts have warned about computer security. Now, that same caution translates to the latest cell phones.

How can I find my contacts in my phone if it is broken?

Your contacts and text messages stored in the SIM can be recovered, transferred, edited or backed up with a SIM card reader and a PC. The SIM card reader is a USB device. Be sure to get one that comes with PC software. Install the software, put your SIM in the reader, enter your PIN code (the same one you use to unlock your cell phone) and you have access to your contacts and text messages as you would any files on your PC. You will not be able to get other information, such as your subscriber information, pictures or music.
