What Is Mobile Phone Data Recovery?
Forensics cell phone data recovery is a branch of digital forensics that relates to the recovery of electronically stored information from a mobile device under forensically sound conditions by utilizing acceptable collection and preservation methods. These methodologies ensure the integrity of data from a subject device. In short, it’s not evidence if it’s not admissible in court.
With the advent of the Smartphone, the methodologies and technologies used to gather data has become progressively more complicated. Older techniques are no longer suitable as Smartphone’s now have the ability to store more data than ever before. Smartphone’s vary by carrier, manufacturer, software, firmware, and applications. These variables in combination present a hefty task for data forensics experts and have shifted the landscape of mobile device forensics. With new mobile devices being launched every year, it is imperative that digital forensic professionals continue to learn and adapt to newer technologies, as there is not a “one size fits all” approach.

Benefits Of Mobile Forensics
Our mobile phones contain information of all our electronic communications (e-mail, text messaging, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, etc.) None of this information is truly “deleted”, even though the prompt on the screen tells us otherwise. This information is essential evidence in an investigation and only an experienced data forensics expert can extract this data and preserve its integrity. That’s where our digital forensics experts come in. We provide detailed reports, certification of business records, and expert witness testimony. Contact us today for a free consultation.
Mobile devices, especially our smart phones, contain electronic records about all of our activity—from the places we shop and eat, to the route we bring our dogs for a walk. This information can either provide law enforcement the information they need to find us, or criminals everything they need to exploit us. For example, there are over 60 variables that are stored inside the metadata of each and every photo that is taken from an iPhone. This information ranges from the exact time and date the photo was taken, to the GPS coordinates (both longitudinal and latitudinal).

There is evidence on my Smartphone… What should I do?
A mobile device is any digital device that has both internal memory and communication ability. Even though the phrase is commonly used to refer to mobile phones, it also includes memory cards, USB drives, GPS devices, PDA’s, and tablet computers. All of these devices store data internally that can be extracted by an experienced digital forensics expert. This stored and most often deleted data can be crucial in the outcome of a court case.
