    Just an FYI. I work in Law Enforcement so I was privy to some recent info.

    Some State and Local anti-terrorism groups have identified a possible bluetooth bug being used by terrorists. The bug creates a loop hole in blue tooth enabled phones allowing unauthorized downloading of SMS/MMS, call lists, phone books, sending and recieving SMS and calls.

    The following steps should be taken to help prevent such access:
    -Enable Bluetooth only when using it
    -Set the device to non-discoverable (hidden) mode
    -Utilize a non-default PIN (ex: 1234)
    -Update your mobile device firmware with the latest version

    Just a heads up. I know there have been previous threads about this but its good to remind everyone.

    Good information.

    Wouldn't someone have to be in range (30 ft.) for a long period of time to accomplish anything on your unit?

    I would think so, but I am not going to take the chance.
