One more reason I will probably drop Verizon in a few months, when my contract is up. Verizon is now requiring it’s customers to Â» Opt Out in order to have your personal data not be sold! They claim that by sending you a little flyer with your bill, that most people will throw away, that you are approving of their plan, unless you call their telephone number. 1-800-333-9956.
It was relatively painless to Opt Out, but the point is that Federal Law already requires them not to sell the information without permission. One should have to Opt In, in order to allow the permission directly, as opposed to them assuming permission.
Not that any of the other mobile providers are any better, but this is one more reason to leave Verizon. Customers vote with their feet, and I almost certainly will.
Well, I don’t know if my parents got the flyer, but I just dialed the # and opted out…for me, my parents, and Luis. So, thanks.
