    In case anyone cares about their private information being shared please read.


    Apparently Verizon has a sneaky new deal where they require you to "opt out" of their plan to share your info, including the record of who you call, with anyone they want. Read the article and then "opt out" by folllowing the instructions in the article. I did it by phone...very easy. You have to do it within 45 days of 3/7/09

    Been here, done this. Search is your friend and, for the record, VZW shares their info INTERNALLY, while some others share externally. There is a difference.

    In the meantime, choose one of the above links, as this thread is a rehash of things from a week ago.

    Verizon shares their information with all of their affiliates also, which means any third party who wants Verizon's information can become an affiliate and then retain all of that information. 3rd parites can apply for an affiliate position with Verizon and if accepted they can then acquire said information.

    I just learned of this information today which is why I posted this. I know how to use the search function and use it regularly. I wasn't using the search function because I wasn't searching for this information, just trying to get it out to all those who were not already in the know about this. Sorry if I ruined your day....You could have just ignored the thread and let others who haven't seen this before review it for themselves....Either way my bad, just trying to help.

    I know you're trying to help - I am just trying to keep the info all in one place.

    The same thing can be said about other companies and carriers who sell their personally identifiable customer data lists to others. This is something VZW does not do.

    This information has been around since 2007, but I guess if you didn't know about it, it's news to you. Here's Verizon Wireless press release about CPNI info then.
