    So just want to let all of the VZW Reps know, VZW is looking into who's actually posting pics and other proprietary info on blogs and forums i.e. crackberry. Someone today got fired from where I work (and no i'm never going to say where). All I know it had to do with emailing proprietary information and we had meeting today because my sup had a meeting with the rest of the sup's and their boss....

    The basis of the meeting was to go over how no matter what, they can view all emails sent and received from your outlook (i.e. john.Doe@verizonwireless.com). I asked my sup why we had the meeting and he doesn't beat around the bush and told us that someone was caught emailing proprietary information and was escorted out.....

    I bring this to light because of all of the info that has been taken by pictures on our phones and/or take a screen shot then e-mailing it to someone else or yourself. They are taking it very serious especially with the recent explosion of leaks for the S2. I'm guessing it was done and brought to light and someone had to be made an example. But with all of this said....

    All of my fellow VZW Reps, is your job or getting a shout out on the front page of Crackberry more important to you?

    Simple tip, take a usb key into work and mail it after, or take a usb cable in, plub it into your BB, copy the image over and email it from there.

    Problem solved

    Wow, escorted out. That ranks up there with ****** your pants on a crowded bus with everyone knowing it was you. I guess you can laugh about it 30 years later, or not.

    Back on topic, the point is that employers do expect their employees to guard proprietary information. Do I like the leaks? Sure I do. But in the end those leaks are violative of the employee-employer relationship. Real harm *can* come to the company as a result of leaks (though admittedly that's unlikely in the S2 case). Okay, you can unmute FOX now.

    Do you realize that your post is even more damaging to VZW? None of the stuff that leaked was IP and basically amounts to free marketing. However, sharing sensitive info like hiring and firing practices in a public forum...

    You may want to start practicing saying "Would you like to biggie size that?"

    Hiring and firing practices are more serious??? Seriously??? All I was doing is shedding light to what happened and thats more serious??? Majority of the people that responded aren't even employees. Try doing something at your respective jobs that your not supposed to do and see how far you get...

    Yeah it's just a phone. But, if it's information thats not supposed to leave your computer, thats just a rule that must be followed. Am I trying to crackdown on leaks and info being pushed from VZW's Intranet system? No. All i'm doing is shedding light onto what happened at work today and asking the question if posting on crackberry is worth more than keeping a job during these tough times is more important.....

    From reading the posts, I can tell a lot of ya'll don't work for VZW and this thread wasn't meant for that purpose. All i'm doing is shedding light to what happened today. Not trying to stop the fun or anything like that but just know they take it serious and would get rid of ya *** in the quickness.

    Sorry to see someone lose their job (allegedly) - But that being said, if they were that dumb to not cover their tracks or take the appropriate steps...well??

    And it's not like it should be a huge surprise, VZW undoubtedly has a policy in writting about these types of violations...

    I'm just sayin....

    I believe other Verizon Reps would care if somebody got fired! Its very important to know how your company is dealing with a problem.

    The best you could come up with is "grow up". Hope you think about this on Monday while you are back at middle school. Do not bother to respond because I'm done with this thread, cause I know it will go on forever with chit that has nothing to do with the OP message. See Ya!

    Eh, no. Really, no. We're all keylogged and screencapped to heck, and the USB ports on our dummy terminals have usb drives disabled. And even if you managed to somehow hack it, somebody would indeed notice the "found new hardware" in the lower right corner. (Like, let's say....THE WHOLE CALL CENTER!)

    I'm not advocating leaking. I'm just saying the only thing worse than a crook is a stupid crook. And if you're leaking stuff from work computers, no matter what your job, that makes you a stupid crook.

    Please don't give ideas to those who are less technologically inclined. Please...

    Considering that... most of the leaks appear to be coming from store consoles anyway. Most ccare and tech reps dont have access to the systems that are pictures. besides the fact far behond someone noticing the "found new hardware" bubble at the bottom of your screen.. ( they wont ) they are more bound to see you blatently holding your phone up the the screen and snapping a pictures.. hence.. " NO CELL PHONES ON THE CALL FLOOR!"
    Its really concerning and scary when I see leak pictures of inventory and whatnot.. I can see a firing down the pipe if that happened.
    point in fact... Our email is limited to INSIDE the center. No outbound or inbound from an outside source. Quite annoying actually.
    They also have us firewalled out of most of the internet including most useful tech forums... uber annoying.
    I would have to say that my center if fairly safe.

    But at the same time the guy who got canned should go in the dummy hall of fame...

    With all due respect, you shouldn't have to tell anyone this. If you are dumb enough to do these type of things you deserve to lose your job.

    Anyone emailing that info from their work PC and work email is a fool! They deserve to be fired. Take the pic with your phone and email it from a personal web email from your BB device or home PC not connected to the VZW network.
