(Memphis) It’s apparently easier than you think for someone to hack into your cellphone.

Security experts were able to spy on a Verizon mobile phone by hacking into the so-called femtocell.

The femtocell is a device network operators use to boost wireless signals.

Hackers were able to record a phone conversations, browse history and text messages, and even view pictures.

Verizon says it is aware of the study and has since fixed the flaw.
