This is something that bugs me. Do you want AT&T scanning your communications for any reason? People who have iPhones or other AT&T communications media could find their files routinely 'sniffed' or examined for files that are 'copyrighted' or can be MISTAKEN for copyrighted. Say, you have a girl friend named Madonna who has a private voice communication or image in your device, it could be determined to be copyrighted, and looked at. There are some voice communications and images we don't want looked at by strangers, and if we should be unfortionate enough to have a name like Madonna or Stone, it could very well be examined by strangers. * CES 2008: AT&T looking for ways to scan customers' communications for copyright violations * http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/01/08/att-and-other-isps-may-be-getting-ready-to-filter/

Wow!! This is unreal. Isn't anything private anymore? And to think this is the Cell Phone company I have for the moment since they took over Cingular. To me, this is unfair practices, and should not be allowed. But anymore how do really know what will be safe, and what not anymore. It is getting unreal.

Privacy is sacred - Privacy is sacred and is getting harder and harder to keep to one's self!
Frankly, I don't know. I read tech blogs to attempt to keep up with all this skulduggery. They cover mostly filesharing, but you learn a lot about keeping your privacy covered. * http://www.slyck.com/ http://www.afterdawn.com/news/ http://torrentfreak.com/
