iPhone Warning

After a warning from prominent hacker, pod2g, Apple is warning iPhone users to be wary of messages being received via SMS. According to the source, a flaw in Apples software allows other hackers to change the appearance of incoming messages. Do not trust that new messages are coming from a well-known source. The hackers can use the flaw in software to change the phone number that the text appears to be coming from.

As of now, there doesn’t seem to be an immediate source for worry. Just be sure to pay attention and be cautious if you receive any text messages on your iPhone asking for any sensitive information. You cannot always be positive that what you are sending is being sent to an intended recipient.

Another way to protect yourself from hackers is to use the iMessage system. Apple has suggested to use this as your preferred messaging program because the senders information is verified, which prevents from these kinds of attacks.

Apple does take security for its users very seriously and are working to resolve the gap in information protection  in the iOS.

Nearly half of the listed 30 devices were Android powered, a staggering 13 Droid gadgets with the original Motorola Droid at the top of the list. Express Wireless was proud to carry the first model and is excited to bring the latest versions to our customers. Come in and see for yourself why a Droid would be a great fit for you.

Verizon Plans Revamped!

For anyone who has not heard the news, Verizon Wireless no longer require unlimited data packages with our smartphones. You can choose to have the 29.99 internet bundle with your phone if you are a heavy mobile internet user. But, for the group of people who are using their Blackberry’s just for the email and light web browsing, you can now just carry a $15 data package to your voice plan to use that phone. The unlimited package is still the best value, especially for Droid users who are downloading Apps, using the free navigation and watching videos.
