Tell AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth to stop invading your privacy

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

This Kos diary has the contact info for the various phone companies. Call them up and rip them a new one.

A few facts and questions:

1. USA Today reports that AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth are giving my phone records to the Bush administration.

2. Does that include my long distance and local calls?

3. Does that include my cell phone calls?

4. Please provide me with a copy of your company's privacy statement - I'm going to read it and sue you if you made any promises to protect my privacy and now have broken that promise.

5. If they do not outright deny giving your phone records to the Bush administration, then tell them you're switching your phone service to someone who does protect your privacy.

6. Qwest has reportedly told the government to go Cheney itself - unlike AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth, Qwest has refused to invade your privacy. Find a number for Qwest and thank them.

7. Report back in the comments what the various companies are telling you. I want to know if any company other than Qwest is protecting our privacy, or whether they've all sold out. Also, make sure we get a clear answer on whether the cell phone providers have violated our privacy as well - i.e, Cingular Wireleless and Verizon Wireless - or whether it's just the landline people.
