Apps Accessing Smartphones Personal Text Messages and Intercepting User’s Calls

I have written an article that free apps may end up to be costing you more than a paid app. Now, your smartphones apps may have been accessing your personal text messages or even be intercepting your calls.

An investigation revealed that Facebook, Flicker and Yahoo Messenger are accessing your text messages and personal data. My Remote Lock and Tennis Juggling Game may have been intercepting your calls.
