That's a good point, I'd forgotten that there's no case law on whether a phone is a computer yet.

Does the Facebook app run on tablets?

Of course if it's a phone then data stored on it must be communications, and accessing them without permission is what put those gutter dwelling slimeballs from the News of The World in prison.
