if you take apart a phone (any phone), you can always work-around thi
problem by making a short electrical de-tour between a mic and the
board -> a little switch between mic and board will do it fine and
you need only some nice small switch what you can hide somewhere on the
side of the phone from inside with easy access. (like original
side-buttons on some phones) You only need some experience e.g. in
building little plastic models:-) If you are really paranoic, dont't
forget to do the same with the speaker also!<br>
Than it doesn't matter it anyone "bugs" into your phone. They hear
nothing until you press the switch. They would hear everything anyway
when you make a call...<br>
This phone will have a unique security options even without that small
switch. It appears to be the most expensive piece of HW on every phone.

Firmware for the GSM system is actually updated from the ear jack port. It
cannot be updated over the air.
I _really_ wish we could give you all access to this but it requires a very

Will the Neo1973 have a protection that the mic could be disconected
form the GSM chip when not calling?
You guys will have control over the mic. This stuff is all handled on the
