Lets start with a question. What makes you believe your phone has been cloned?

I just became suspicious of a certain individual but my phone hasn’t been acting differently
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 6 months ago

The likelihood of a cloned phone is really stuff of Hollywood. Unless someone had money and ties to government agencies it is highly unlikely that someone has a full working clone of your phone. Does that make sense?

Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 6 months ago

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
