A solid case is built on supporting documentation that reports on where the evidence originated and how it was handled. Look very carefully for the presence of memory cards. Look very carefully for the presence of cables related to the mobile phone that is being collected, especially if you don't have a full set of cables in your lab. Take pictures of every item before collection. But modifications in mobile devices can happen not only because of the interaction with the forensic practitioner but also due to interaction with the network, voluntary or not.
