The iPhone has already been the target of at least two, maybe three 
exploits.

All computing devices are subject to such exposures.

In fact, you don't even need a smart phone to terrorize people through 
phone hacks - older phones work just fine:

All phones are inherently less secure than most computers, since with a 
computer you can disconnect it from the network.

The only way to get equivalent security with a phone is to turn it off.
