Paraben's device seizure

Paraben's Device Seizure is a handheld device for capturing the data on cell phones and PDAs. It uses a physical acquisition method. It supports phones made by LG, Motorola (including the iDen, Nokia, Siemens, Samsung, Sony-Ericsson, and the iPhone, although the amount of data acquired from the iPhone plug-in can vary depending on the version of the operating system and whether the phone has been unlocked using Jailbreaking software. The tool also supports GSM SIM cards with use of a SIM card reader. Paraben also sells such products.

The tool also supports PDAs running Palm OS, Windows CE, Pocket PC, and Windows Mobile, Blackberry, Symbian, and EPOC, although not all versions of all operating systems are supported.

The vendor claims the product can recover data from Garmin GPS devices, but this has not yet been verified.
