I will add below some extras.


1) There are exploits on mobiles (similar to PC)

Remote installation exploits, denial of service, etc.

Exploits price: 100,000 usd upto 500,000 usd aprox.

Check VUPEN Security or any security forum for them (most of the not public)

If you have the money to pay advice me or contact any of the above providers.


2) There are malwares on market.

Check FINSPY for example that are designed for government.


3) There are some crypto sequences in AES256 or 3DES to completely modify the SIM and install java applications.

Must be done by carrier.


4) As Sylvain explains, if you could install a malware, you could do whatever you want on a mobile.


There are many other options, but requires a technician approach and it is complicate to understand.


Response to ALL your questions is YES for all of them. If any of the above 1,2,3,4 points is used.
