    Hi,
    Can provider hack IOS and acccess your phone somehow?
    You know some sms messages can change phone settings : GPRS, MMS, etc Settings.
    So Is there a way to hack a phone through cell towers or providers?

    Thanks in advance

    The most they can do is blacklist your imei or send a carrier update file (which usually goes though Apple first)

    Just my two cents on this one :
    In your cell phone you have a SIM card, this is a small computer running a Java virtual machine. On this card the provider can download an app to make this computer do whatever he wants ( as the operator has the OTAKey for your SIM card ) , read your data, your location, listen your communications, ....
    Also as millions of these key have been stolen by the UK NSA ( CGHQ ) you can count that NSA , DEA, FBI etc have them so they can do the same thing.
    Sorry for all that

    Can they disable your wi-fi or burn something in your phone? (physical part)
    Which information they can access and read? (mean IMEI, IOS version, Jailbroken or not, etc)

    Blatantly false.

    The "small computer" is not running Java anything, and the SIM card subsystem (RIL) is completely isolated from the main smartphone OS.

    Jesus, It's horrible...
    Can they turn on/off your airplane mode?

    (TS//SI//REL) DROPOUTJEEP -> What about jailbreak of phone?
    What about password on the phone?
    I think they need physical access to phone!
