    Opted out as well, not that I really care so much but why let them make money from selling/sharing my info when they don't lower my bill in exchange...

    Anyway thanks for the info!

    Verizon can collect just about any information about you they want but the law says they can't share it with other companies unless you say they can. The common "opt in by default" is an old tactic that still seems to work. The information they share might not be anything to worry about now but since there aren't any specifics right now doesn't mean they won't share more sensitive information in the future.

    The information they would share would likely contribute to what bloat to add to upcoming OTA updates, analysis of what services are selling & what isn't and information to fabricate future "feel good" promotions (i.e. throw the dog a bone, promotions that nobody cares about but company can say they are still interested in their loyal customers).


    Thank you for posting, I have opted out also.

    This needs to be more widely disseminated. Why aren't the blog sites all over this?

    Thanks for the information. I checked and I must have been poking around the Profiles page at some point because my lines were already listed as opted out. :icon_ banana:
