PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's going to be a rough month for what was once one of the most successful smartphone companies in the world. Between all the Android and iOS violence, it's easy to forget there's this Canadian company which was still growing its userbase every month. However, it's expected the company will lose subscribers for the very first time.

Seriously, do you Apple fanatics even read the articles that you post in defense?

Read it carefully again. It does not say that the DOJ, LEO, or other security government professionals use the iPhone or even recommend it to their employees for work.

This article, however, backs up my original post:

Nothing has changed as of yet with these policies.

An article from December last year, suggesting you use Dell phones running Android 2.2? Well, have fun with that.

I think the truth is more that governments have trouble peeking in an iPhone than an Android one. Your own users are the biggest security risks and you don't want them to use devices you can't get access to.

You claim "They are allowed modified Android phones", while in reality it is only one model phone, an obscure Dell phone. It is only allowed after it received its modification. This says nothing about iPhone security.

They took an Android phone because it's easy to modify and add their own backdoors to it. So if you're fond of privacy and security never ever use a phone given to you by a government agency.
