    THe answer to yor question is no. We have better things to do. There are most likely records, but no one get anything without a court order.

    Beware of tetherberry. there was a thread where someone got charged large sums money using this software.

    This is what I say to people who dispute data usage. "Tell me where I went!" We don't make it easy to recover this information due to privacy concerns. There are probably logs but it can be only access by higher ups and probably w/ a legal subpoena

    Well, there was no court order when the Bush Administration managed to get "private" phone data. Congress allowed it after the fact and just last week, courts say,well, okay, then!!! I will admit we are a far cry from N Korea but nothing is private where technology is concerned.

    Please, the bush administration got information regarding TERROR activities in the United States. It seems a little ridiculous for them to get a warrant to record/get data on a conversation before they can record it. Phone calls happen instantly. It's not like a house search.

    Guys - I hate to tell you this, but ALL cellphone companies are REQUIRED to keep a record of your cellphone activities. The current Marxist regime has heavily stepped that up, as well.

    Just because the reps can't see it doesn't mean it isn't there.

    We are not photographed & recorded more than any people except the North Koreans & in some cases the Brits. That attitude of "I don't care, because I don't do anything wrong" was bred into people's heads - those under 40 - and it is this very attitude that is making us less private than mainland Chinese.

    News report here from a few months ago said law enforcement used AT&T cellphone data records for the past three years in their arrest of a pair of school teachers for selling marijuana.

    Mind you, I am in one of the most conservative states in the country. Imagine what people in Illinois, Massachussetts or the Land of Fruits & Nuts (California) are being subjected to.

    Exactly - and how does one determine it will be used properly? That would be my question.

    You can have 100% privacy the moment you startup your own cellular service. You are using a service provided by a corporation, as such your privacy is already compromised as far as what you do with the items provided for by that company.

    Your text messages are stored, your web browsing is recorded. It is up to the companies discretion as to what they do with the data, that is why they have the privacy rules in place and can and will provide the data under proper procedures. Aka, Court ordered subpoena or Order of Homeland Security.

    All carriers are required by law to maintain records and turn them over to an authorized law enforcement agency with a court order to do so.
    FCC - Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act
    This was not a result of 9/11. It was enacted during the Clinton administration (1994). However, each administration has amended the law as they've seen fit.

    Although a court order is required, some cave under the pressure, like the bigshot @ AT&T. He just turned it over and now He's running GM. Go figure.

    Constitutionally, the act is invalid - but that didn't stop anything. Court order required? That doesn't stop government. They've been bent on doing exactly what they want for some time now and the uninformed, lazy, pop-culture populace allows them to do so.

    If you're on a GSM carrier, the government already records, and listens to, what is going on. Picking up GSM is as simple as having an older scanner or a receiver tuned to the correct frequency.

    Yeah, our rights are slowly being chipped away as we sit on our thumbs and do nothing about it. 9/11 was the excuse the government has been waiting for. Personally I would trade security and safety for a little more privacy, besides if terrorists want to kill me they will have to hope they are a better shot than I am. I was really ticked off when Congress passed laws protecting telecom companies from lawsuits, they deserve to be punished for handing out information without warrants.

    Here is a link to a recent post about privacy on AT&T, be sure to read the "See Also" links provided below the article.
