iPhone a Headache -- I Forgot the hackers

The one thing I forgot when I bought the iPhone was its susceptibility to hackers -- far more than other cells. This is because it is a bloody computer, not a phone and, all the hackers in the world are after getting into it. I have so much personal information on that phone that I am really worried. This is not just an idle concern; hackers have already demonstrated definitively that they can get into the phone and all the files.

    Yes. I have one too and I think I have already been hacked into. What a mistake to have bought it!

    It is amazing that they actually seem to have brought the product to market without a simple patch.
