What information can a criminal investigator get from a cell phone?
Question Details: When they take your phone for a download for their investigation, what info is downloaded - erased texts, Facebook messages, etc.?
If they had a warrant to search the phone, they could look for whatever information was specified in the warrant.
If someone voluntarily (i.e. without there being a warrant) lets the investigator have and examine the phone, they can look for or at anything on it, because by voluntarily letting the phone be examined, there are no limits placed on the investigation.
