Personal devices are familiar

One thing that's not mentioned here is familiarity. Sometimes it's easier to use your personal device simply because you know it. Every new device has a learning curve and we don't always have time to do the learning.

Yes, TJ, that sounds about right. In my opinion, the contents of a smartphone is no different than a reporter's notebook, which is fair game for either side to subpoena in a lawsuit.

Using a personal device for company business

More and more, I'm hearing that people are using personal devices for business. There are a number of reasons. Some people prefer the iPhone over the company Blackberry. In another instance, I have a friend who quit using the company phone because the company was scrutinizing phone records to see if the company phone had any personal calls on it.

Personal may become very public

If one's personal smartphone is used for business, could it be subpoenaed should your company become a participant in a lawsuit?  Could the entire contents of the smartphone, (and by extension, your entire personal account) become part of the lawsuit?
