Hi Carver. :)

Thank you for your post, I noticed that on wilderssecurity.com and funnily enough I didn’t think to post it here !

You are right to make us all think about the information we simply make available. Nice to see Eraser gets a mention ! What a shame there isn’t a Symbian version of Eraser for our mobile phones.

Now there’s a thought ! :lol:

In my way, I like to use data cell phone wipes to wipe personal data from cell phones. It's easy and can wipe all the personal data without recovery. So there is no need to worry about info leak.
