Today, at exactly 15:30 (14:30 GMT), my HTC desire, that was powered OFF, suddenly woke up - just as if I'd pressed the power button.  (It was on the table at the time.  The button was not knocked accidentally.)

This has happened on a few previous occasions - and indeed I've discovered the device on when I know I'd turned it off.

I know that Google and HTC claim to collect data about the device's usage etc., but does this extend to remotely activating the device [to collect such data]?  Or is this government survelillance?  (Yes, I'm serious.)

I called Vodafone, who flatly denied that they have the ability, or the authority to do such a thing.

Of course, many people have their phone on 24/7 (or certainly all the time during the day), so if there was any snooping going on they wouldn't notice.  I only noticed because I heard the HTC switch-on tune.

Incidentally, has anybody found any stored files/pdfs on their device that they don't recall downloading?
