Bugs & Viruses AT&T has told the U.S. Congress that its customers agreed to host Carrier IQ tracking software on their cellphones in their contracts. You might recall that, after the scandal over warrentless surveillance broke in 2006, AT&T quietly changed their contract for internet service to say that it -- not its customers -- owns all the customers' internet records. Those concerned about privacy might consider whether AT&T merits their trust.

And where are you going? Maybe two cans on a string, because T-Mobile and Sprint also spy on their customers with Carrier IQ and even though Verizon is not using carrier IQ, they recently changed they privacy policy so they can spy on their customers in similar ways.
