Sophie Highfield Bought iPhone 5s and Found Top Celebrity Contact
We would like to know what would you do if you buy a brand new iPhone 5s and find your contact app filled with personal contact. Contacts related to celebrity numbers and your photo app full of celebrity photos.
Sophie Highfield lives at Erdington, Birmingham went to Three Mobile, bought an Apple iPhone 5s. She did what everyone with a new iPhone does, started to register new contacts. Severals months later, she typed the later A to call a friend, ” Big Surprise”, she discovered there was “Adele“, as contact. Also fashion guru Gok Wan, Spice Girl Emma Bunton and Denise Welch.
She couldn’t believe it, she started to review the phonebook one by one. She found number of countless celebrities such as the former olympic champion Greg Rutherford.
When we finally have an answer from her, she states: ” I’ve got no idea how it has happened. I seem to have access to literally hundreds of people’s numbers.” As well as celebs, Sophie’s mobile contains numbers for a host of random strangers – including ‘Brandon from Subway’ and ‘Sophie Babysitter’.
The iPhone 5s supposed to be brand new and completely unopened. When we have a few words with Vladimir Katalov, CEO of Software company Elcomsoft located in Moscow said: This is the first case I have heard about”. It was a brand new, not refurbished, no previous owner, wasn’t connected to any other accounts before.
Our deduction about this situation is it seems like an iCloud glitch. The phone was previously belong to someone which probably working in the media. Other entries appear to be for BBC staff members and others in the TV industry.
Lynda Bellingham, Nicholas Lyndhurst, Busted’s Matt Willis, Rodney from Only Fools and Horses were listed.
Finally, we think Apple must take it seriously because technology is not always such a blessing. You can’t see any other devices connected to your iCloud while other information is sharing or syncing across different accounts.
