From what I understand, people can still get data/files back from computer/laptops hard drives after it has been formatted. So I'm assuming people can do the same for mobile phones after a factory reset?

It is possible to get files/data back if you keep the memory card in the phone

Of course it is possible - you just need the right equipment and to know how to decode the data you get back.

Just the same as computers, just because you delete something, doesn't mean it's gone for ever or hasn't left traces of its existence behind!

Oh so even if the mobile phone runs on Windows Mobile and have 8GB internal memory, a factory reset of the phone will permanent delete any files/data? Seems like its a more secure way of saving data than USB drives!
