Re: AT&T's network is horrid

said by TuPaK:

They can take their network along with their ETF once the iPhone is on Verizon or other carriers. I'll be more than happy to leave AT&T. The iPhone barely makes up for their highly lacking network.
Everything about AT&T is horrid -- they're a vile company run by liars and criminals. Their track record with handing over user data to the NSA without due process is a wonderful example of their lack of morals. I will never, EVER knowingly do business with them. Two cans connected by a string would be a better option.

How soon the verizon loving sheep forget, verizon was doing the same thing with the NSA. It was not just at&t. All these at&t complaints are just a viral myth and the sheep just go along with it and start to believe it. Then the too start the same viral message.

All true, but Verizon and Sprint are no better. After many denials old
Ivan finally admitted to Charlie Rose that they were part of project vacuum cleaner.

Actually it was MCI before being acquired by Verizon that was handing over data to the NSA, was Verizon supposed to know this before they bought MCI?

I wouldn't be surprised today if every provider handed over these types of records and more to the government if asked to do so. Since 9/11 we've been in an ever-increasing state of terror-paranoia (terrornoia? ) and panic. I've just made the assumption that our government can get their grubby little paws on any information they want.

If privacy is that important to you (and, IMO, it should be), I'd recommend taking several steps to anonymize yourself and your activities. Don't surf to sites you don't want others to know about on any equipment but your own, and don't surf to these sites using any ISP connection that you're paying for. (i.e. Drive around town and find an open WiFi router or two.)
Don't use your home phone or cell phone for conversations you don't want others to know about; those are best done face-to-face. And with current cell phone technology being able to turn on phone microphones remotely on some devices (and also track them remotely), phones and other wired electronics are best left at home when going to these meetings.

To those who would suggest that you have nothing to worry about if you have nothing to hide... I'd suggest rethinking that position. The government's powers to spy on its own citizens should be severely limited and crippled, unless good reason can be provided to a panel of jurors (not a judge or two) in a public court forum (not some super-secret closed-door session that potentially violates sunshine laws). The governed can only be truly free when those who govern are held responsible and accountable for all of their actions.
