Yeah.. everyone knows that you "accidentally" code things to retrieve personal data. Give me a break. And also, if you're apart of this lawsuit, sue on your own. Do not sue as part of a class action lawsuit or you'll get screwed on the payouts. Better you, than a lawyer, takes home the pay.

I want to see it.
How many new assholes will he have (assuming Psystar is any signal of the ferocity of Apple's lawyers).
Just another reason for me to never buy an Apple product! It seems that Apple Almighty approves applications that steal data. Wonderful. Apple should have been included in the lawsuit since they "control" what gets on the iPhone and what doesn't.
wow, someone has my phone number. What will I do, I guess you could say everyone has eveyones number, just type 10 digits and you have a phone number. I could see if they had your name address and telephone number and your cell phone harware id's but just a phone number, big F*** deal
As dontcare_70 says though, other than the knowledge that there's someone active on that phone number with an iphone, what does this 'malware' give away and is it actually a problem?
If it doesn't even tag a name or other details with it there ought not to be too much harm (I'd hope). Unless people fall for the "hello, your iphone was recently used to download X, please confirm your personal details and we will discuss the impact to your account" type of phonecall.
My comment doesn't take into account if there's a difference between "wireless phone number" and a phone number - I've never heard reference to the former. I suppose it could be a MAC address or something (but then they'd have called it that?)
