Mobile phones and other handheld devices are everywhere now a day. Cell phones and cellular devices can be involved in a crime or other incident. Digital forensic specialists will require specialized tools for forensics examination of mobile phones for proper recovery and speedy analysis of data present on mobile phones. Based on the various extraction methods different levels of analysis can be logically grouped for evidence acquisition from mobile phones. Based on these levels (Manual, Logical, Hex-Dump, Chip-Off and Micro Read) a pyramid of forensic tools available in international market can be sketched. Scope of this paper is to excavate into challenges associated while carrying forensic analysis of mobile phones, elaborate various analysis techniques and depict a pyramid of forensic techniques and tools.
