    No way in hell unless you cause the problem.

    1) Your GFs information on the SIM is limited to her contacts, that's it. Basically, only her phonebook info would be accessible up to the point when her old BF took the SIM out. Not much other than that lives on there.

    2) When your GF got the new SIM, it would have registered itself to the NEXTEL network by the IMEI number in the phone because she would have gotten a new phone number with it. The SIM only gives the phone the ability to turn on and off for purposes of acitvating the phone for purposes other than 911 calls, storing phonebook contacts, and moving a user's phone number and contacts from one unit to another.

    3) The "bastard" would not be able to intercept her text messages as they are stored on the NEXTEL network, not the SIM, and addressed by the IMEI number of the phone which is cross-referenced to her cell phone number in this format. xxxxxxxxxx@messaging.nextel.com. The only way he could get her texts is if you're dumb enough to be sending to his cell phone number (her old one) instead of her new current one.

    4) As for hacking the actual communications, iDEN is one of the most secure networks for cell phones. It utilizes strong encryption and is not able to be wiretapped without help from Motorola and NEXTEL. Even the Feds must seek this help. The calls and data are split up using a quasi-TDMA standard that divides the info into encrypted 15 millisecond bits. Depending on the vocoder in your unit it could be split into 3 or 6 divisions. The voice data is encrypted using a Motorola technology called VSELP. The data is encrypted using up to 128-bit encryption standards developed by the NSA.

    IMHO, I think your GF better choose her friends better because they could be forwarding the messages she sends to them over to her old BF later. Loose lips sink ships. She's probably blabbing to them and in turn they're sticking it to her... especially if one of them is dating her old BF behind her back. Blackmail is not a NEXTEL problem, it's an operator problem which exists between the keypad and the user.

    You'd know all of this by now if you would have searched the other posts in here and other cell phone forums because the question is always asked. RESPECT THE SEARCH BUTTON!!!

    She never got a new phone number. It never changed. Is there a way that these messages we are sending back and forth could be going to his phone (with the old sim card) AND to her phone too?

    It all started when "somehow" her entire SIM was scratched to hell. He took it and replaced it with all of the info/address book on the new SIM. So if the number never changed, what's that about?
    NEXTEL assigns phone numbers to IMEIs. They may have blacklisted the IMEI off of the old phone in order for her to keep the same number for her new phone. In any event, the network would not allow 2 phones to have the same phone number. Otherwise, the guys in here would have a field day by putting a phone in the den, one in the entertainment room, one in the garage... and they'd all ring at the same time. "Hey Chuck... Billy's on the line... says the i930 is dropping tomorrow at the Piggly Wiggly!"

    Re: Someone is Hacking my GF's Nextel Phone/Sim Card.

    my problem is similar but not exactly the same. i am on verizon and sent a message to both my son and husband. later the same day when he said i never sent him the message i opened my phone and showed him the outbox where it listed his number and my sons, then went online and pulled up usage details and instead of it being delivered to my husband and son it went to a nextel number that i do not know in elizabethtown ky and my sons number. apparently every so often it just sends a message that is supposed to go to my husband to this number. we have even changed out his phone and had verizon run every check they can think of on his blackberry and mine. i even checked my email settings to make sure there are no blind copies being sent to this number in the email settings/delivery options on my emails or chat (bbc for those email illiterate) and every security tests we could think of. was finally told to do a hard wipe and use a former restore point to reset both phones. not sure if it worked yet or not. but being this is her ex and he has had access to her phone you want to run a virus check on it and check the email settings and go into the actual email and make sure no blind copies being sent to him or that he didn't install a spyware program that will forward all her phone data to an email of his choice. flexispy is one i have heard of before and i know it works on all but touch screens unless they have found a way to update it. i would take it to your carrier and have them flash the phone, and if that doesn't solve the problem then install a seperate security (i use a free version like lookout but there are others and even better versions) that allows you to scan it for malware that is designed to be disguised as core applications. when all else fails, replace the phone and change the number and set a password to where its an overpriced paperweight without that password. then no one can forward her messages while she isn't paying attention.
