    3G, yes; Wi-Fi, no. Unless Verizon is the ISP that the wireless router is connected to of course.

    Do they have the ability to see it? Yes. Do they care what pr0n jack & jill are looking at? No.

    Unless you are trying to do some serious illegal act, and are dumb enough to leave a digital trail, I'd say don't worry about them looking at you. They have mind boggling amounts of data going through their networks every minute and aren't worried nor do they care about what people do other than for statistical purposes to give them advertising and future growth models (like where upgrades are needed, what devices to get ect). And for data on how much to bill ya ;)

    VZW reason for tracking what you download and use your phone for.... to CHARGE you. They don't care what... they just wanna know how much!

    So, the lesson here is: wait until you're on public wifi to browse to Al Qaeda's website.
