====Introduction====
: http://www.computercop.com/examiner.html
+
Cellular telephones are a ubiquitous consumer device. Over 180 million subscribers are using one of over 500 different cellphones offered in the United States from over 30 different manufacturers, processing voice and data traffic over 4 carrier networks. Invariably, with so much voice and data traffic being sent from one cellphone to another, many of these phones can provide critical evidentiary data to crime scene  investigators. Unfortunately, the forensic acquisition and analysis of these phones is a new process in the computer forensics world. Several reasons exist, but the main reasons are the lack of awareness and training of law enforcement agencies. This paper is an effort to change this deficiency.

====Processes of the Acquisition, Preservation, Analysis of Evidence ====
: http://www.For-Sec.com
+
Due to their nature, cell phones are acquired and preserved in the same action. This acquisition and preservation is done with various tools and technologies. The actual process of the virtual acquisition of the phone depends very much upon the manufacturer and model of the phone.

 +
Usually, a visit to one of the phone carriers’ outlet location can provide you with the information detailing the specifics of the phone. However, in a worst case scenario, removing the battery out from its compartment usually will provide you with the manufacturer name and specific model number.
 +
<br><br>
 +
Once the phone is identified, either through known identification or through other aforementioned means, more information can be gleaned about the phones technical specifications and capabilities by visiting the PhoneScoop (www.phonescoop.com) website.

Over 180 million subscribers are using one of over 500 different cellphones offered in the United States from over 30 different manufacturers, processing voice and data traffic over 4 carrier networks. Invariably, with so much voice and data traffic being sent from one cellphone to another, many of these phones can provide critical evidentiary data to crime scene investigators. Unfortunately, the forensic acquisition and analysis of these phones is a new process in the computer forensics world.
