"Nokia has confirmed that some of its Bluetooth-enabled cell phones are vulnerable to "bluesnarfing," in which an attacker exploits a flaw to read, modify and copy a phone's address book and calendar without leaving any trace of the intrusion.
Networking and security company AL Digital said on Monday that it had discovered a security flaw in Bluetooth, a wireless data standard, that could allow such an attack. The flaw affects a number of Sony Ericsson, Ericsson and Nokia handsets, but some models--including a handful of Nokia phones--are at greater risk because they invite attack even when in "invisible mode," according to AL Digital.

TREO 600 or P900 - please help
anyway, here's what this post is all about.
i absolutely need help from experts or at least from people who've seen what these two phones can do.
i've been having trouble choosing between treo and p900 and my aunt is asking me to choose fast. she owns a treo600 and she's telling me that it's better than the p900 and another friend of mine also told me to buy treo. but now when i compared the two with phonescoop, i find that p900 has a lot more features than treo600 and treo carries a lower rating although it's a bit unfair since p900 only has one review and treo has several (and the 1st one was quite damaging). one of the main ...

Verizon 120e Motorola phone work on Alltel Network
Verizon kid said no can do. Different chips inside.
Hard to belive this is the case. Cant believe Motorola would manufacture different radios for the CDMA phones. I would think it would be in the CMOS or bios and all that is needed is to be erased or "flashed".
IS this smoking mirrors ?
Anyone know the real Truth?
