It is a weird little thing.
The Palm phone is a device that you can add on to your Verizon plan, which shares your phone number. It’s a phone designed for you to use on the weekends, when you’re going out for the evening, or just generally when you want to be a little less distracted by your big phone with all its apps. That said, it runs a full version of Android 8.1 and all the apps from the Google Play Store.

☆★Ss7(signaling system No7) attack☆★ You can read text listen to phone calls and track mobile phone users’ locations with just the knowledge of their phone number using a vulnerability in the worldwide mobile phone network infrastructure.
SS7, which is called Common Channel Signalling System 7 (CCSS7) in the US or Common Channel Interoffice Signaling 7 (CCIS7) in the UK, is a system that connects one mobile phone network to another. It was first developed in 1975 and has many variants.
Most networks use protocols defined by the American National Standards Institute and the European Telecommunications Standards Institute.
SS7 is a set of protocols allowing phone networks to exchange the information needed for passing calls and tex between each other and to ensure correct billing. It also allows users on one network to roam on another. 👉Once you have access to the SS7 system, you can essentially have access to the same amount of information and snooping capabilities as security services.
👉you can transparently forward calls, giving you the ability to record or listen in to them. 👉you can also read SMS messages sent between phones, andtrack the location of a phone using the same system that the phone networks use to help keep a constant service available and deliver phone calls, texts and data.
