DO NOT TRUST ConnectTech

The first call could not fix my iPhone settings and cutoff the call. 

The second call hacked my email, harvested the address book and sent out spam asking for money AFTER I paid $150 for the service. They even asked for the administrator password to my computer while remoted in. Either they are very experience hacker or not qualified to run their own software. My best is on EXPERIENCED HACKERS!!!

 

Stay away

Ineffectual maybe, hackers, I highly doubt.

 

A common missconception is, that if someone gets spam from your address, that you (your computer, your account) have somehow been "hacked".

 

Your address book does not need to be harvested from you. If you use "Send To All", "Forward To All", "Reply To All", or some similar command, when sending email you are sending your address book with that email to everyone on your contact list, and if any of those recipients use "Forward To All" or "Reply To All", they've just sent it to everyone on their contact list, and so on. So, shortly enough, your address book could potentially be planted on a 1000 computers, any one of which could have malware that harvests email addresses.

 

 

If you are still having problems with your iPhone, I would suggest posting your questions over in the Wireless Community.

 

As far as your ConnecTech contract, I would suggest calling in and asknig for your money back as they were unable to help you solve your problems.
