In the classic days of the bureau, secret agents were trained a bit differently. Some skills are universally helpful though no matter how much the world changes.
For example, in the past agents would often work very hard to perfect the unnoticeable “briefcase swap.” This was one of the best ways to exchange intelligence, especially in busy city centers. Everyone carried briefcases and a swap could be so seamless that not a single person in a crowd of hundreds would notice.
Now-a-days, with the improvements in technology, most intelligence can be passed back to headquarters or on to other agents digitally. The seamless “briefcase swap” is becoming a thing of the past.
That being said, the skill is still valuable and used quite often but now most of the time it’s a “cell phone swap.” Phone swaps are especially important in regions of the world with questionable internet that is either very unreliable or prone to government surveillance.
Recently I was part of one such “cell phone swap” in a major city in Asia. We had a secret agent working undercover who needed to get us some new information. We decided to swap the Galaxy J2 Core and use a rugged case from IRON ARMOR2.
It was important that both our phones and cases match. Using the premium Galaxy J2 Core heavy duty case was a great option as the phone is quite powerful and the case super drop and shockproof protection. The case comes with 3 colors to choose from but to match we both selected black.
As a bonus, the case comes with a holster with swivel belt clip included. The plan was to have both phones clipped to our belts and as we passed each other on the busy sidewalk we would unclip, swap, and reclip the phones without anyone noticing.
The backup plan, if the clips proved to be too slow, was to drop the phones and do the swap on the ground. This was a bit riskier but I knew the Galaxy J2 Core holster case has been military grade standard drop tested. It was supposed to withstand drops from 2 meters so it shouldn’t have been a problem.
The swap went perfectly though and we didn’t have to resort to dropping the phones. That being said, the rugged dual layer construction would have been up for it. The Galaxy J2 Core rugged case has both a hybrid thermoplastic inner skin and an outer durable polycarbonate frame with kickstand.
That being said, I wasn’t as smooth as I’d have liked with the swap. To be honest, I’m a bit out of practice. Like I said before, the perfect, seamless swap is a bit of a disappearing skill.
When clipping the phone back in Galaxy J2 Core holster case, I hit the screen a bit hard on the clip. The case’s raised bezel for extra screen protection prevented any damage though. The tempered glass screen protector also kept the screen nice and scratch-free.
The swap was a success and we got the intelligence we needed. The undercover agents phone was packed with intelligence. With the storage power of phones now-a-days, you can practically store a whole computer’s worth of data on a phone.
The other benefits of using cellphones for swaps is that they can be easily tracked and even remotely erased if they fall into the wrong hands. Also important when selecting the Galaxy J2 Core holster case was the fact that with the ultra slim case all buttons and ports on the phone were still easily accessible.
