Just this week, a US Court ruled that cell phones can be searched without a warrant. The reasoning behind the ruling was that someone could erase information from a cell phone remotely, therefore erasing valuable evidence. I just wonder how prevalent the phone erasing programs are? Is this even a valid concern.

Have they not heard of Faraday cages? Just cut all the wireless off from the phone so that remote erasure commands can't be issued.
