    I was inquiring how secure a cell phone would be for internet banking? In what ways, if any, are they vulnerable to hackers and is there any way to protect against it?

    not secure as land line, make your calls short so they don`t have enough time to collect data and decrypt your key

    Re: Security for cell phones

    I tried going to my bank from the WAP browser once and they had this big bold warning that I was not accessing their site through a secure connection! Therefore, I don't do it. Instead, I use my bank's automated telephone account info if I'm away from the computer.

    Re: Security for cell phones

    Has anyone ever heard of a mobile phone being 'hacked' without the 'hacker' stealing the user's log-in information con artist style.

    I know there is some debate about this in the Paris Hilton case, whether or not the hackers got her password or hacked the t-mobile server. This aside, I was hoping for other cases people could link me to.

    For the typical CDMA connection the encyryption is so great that its impossible to be "hacked" into. Very secure just like the voice feature, cannot be intercepted unlike the old "analog" signal which was about as secure as a C.B. radio.
