    I have a few quick questions about the LG G3 LS990 which I may return because I have a ex fiancé who keeps hacking me onto his server n taking me off whatever carrier I am with to steal data and signal Verizon caught on a little with there fraud team, I am a single mom of an autistic son I may return the phone on contract with sprint and pay the 500.00 for boost mobile, are the GSM or CDMA as a prepaid service, sprint offered to exchange the phone for free through my warrenty because he definitely got his hands on it and added some background apps I had GSM checked off as well as CDMA but he must have got a hold of the sim card, I see he sliced it horizontally, shouldn’t this model eject the sim by pushing up on it, u can’t even get it out, so frustrating I spent 4 hours on the phone with sprints tech team last night , when people try to call the cell they get a weird interference sound and I get no call just a notification for a missed call, but all of a sudden yesterday my home phone rings and then the cell will be ringing he knows how to port numbers even what is the best phone for security you recommend or app for security, thanks, with love, michelle

      You can search for Antivirus. You can also change the permissions of the apps for better security ( in MAIN SETTINGS >> MANAGE APPLICATION ).
