    I want to get them out of my phone. I don't do anything illegal. People I know paid them to harass me. How do I remove their spyware from my phone?

    Did you see the reply to your previous post? We actually even have a sticky in that other forum, to which you were directed in that topic.

    No they don't.

    Now if you'd care to describe what symptoms you're experiencing, we'll try to help figure out what the problem (if any) is.

    I spent 12 years in communications for NYPD - if someone paid someone to hack into your phone, one of two things would happen:

    1. He'd be warned to not try finding anyone to do that, or he'll be the first suspect, and get arrested for it.

    2. He'll be laughed at, then ignored.

    The penalty for someone in NYPD for hacking into your phone is a little swifter and a little worse than for a civilian doing it. (Trust me - no cop wants to end up in the general population at Sing Sing - it's a life sentence ... and a very short one. Only someone suicide-prone would even think about it.)

    On another note... IF you were being spied upon... you WOULD NOT know about it.

    Most NYPD "phone spying" is a phone tap - nothing on the phone, just a recorder at the carrier's central office - so, as joeldf said, you don't know about it.

    (They don't care what you're taking pictures of, or what games you play, all they want is your conversations and your texts. And, if you don't normally do things they care about [like printing money, running girls, dealing large quantities of drugs], they're not going to get a warrant to tap the phone. No one in NYPD is going to even ask a carrier to tap a phone without a warrant in his hand as he's asking. Looking up a pretty girl's plate to get her name and address? Maybe. Tapping a phone? Not anyone intelligent enough to sign his name.)
