Cell phones and mobile devices can prove to be valuable sources of information in many types of investigations. Parties in litigation seeking to prove usage of stolen client lists often find important clues by analyzing patterns of activities on cell phones and PDAs, including contacts and their creation dates as well as when and how often certain phone numbers were called.
Forensicon performs cell phone and mobile device data acquisition on a flat rate basis. Where a cell phone or mobile device is listed as a cellebrite-supported model, Forensicon is often able to copy all of the data off the device for further review or analysis in a few hours time.
Forensicon does not provide cell phone forensics services related to spyware, malware, or hacking investigations. Our services focus on preservation of evidence and recovery of deleted information for litigation purposes. Forensicon is unable to guarantee that the specific deleted data being sought will be recovered given how often data is overwritten on mobile devices.
Forensicon utilizes the Cellebrite UFED Touch Ultimate Technology. This unit is battery operated and portable allowing for collections almost anywhere. This tool allows us to support the following iOS devices: iPhone® (original), iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 5, iPhone 6, iPad® 1, iPad 2, iPod® Touch 3G and iPod Touch 4G. We also support a number of Android® and Blackberry® based devices.
The following content can usually be retrieved from smart phone devices:
- Call logs
- Contact lists
- Locations (Wi-Fi, cell towers and GPS coordinates)
- SMS (Text) and MMS (Video/Audio) Messages
- And More!
