A few weeks ago, Amanda Stanton's iPhone suddenly went black.
She had been talking on it and navigating with a GPS app during a work trip to Los Angeles. Then, without any warning or error message, the phone quit.
Everything was gone -- all her contacts, photos and even the phone's ability to make calls.
It was only after she got home to Silicon Valley that she found out that her phone had been killed by her employer, a publishing company.
