Isn't anyone concerned about privacy issues with the iphone? I mean look at what is required?!?: To purchase and activate iPhone 3G, you need the following:* ▪ Credit card ▪ Social security number ▪ Valid government-issued photo ID ▪ Current wireless account number and password or PIN (if youre new to AT&T) * Plus a full credit check * Plus must be 18 years or older to purchase * Finally a 1,000 page report on your life history, with birth certificate, finger prints, and full blood analysis (just kidding for now, this won't be required until iphone 4G service according to rumors from AT&T) This all smells like a 666 rat chip that you hold in your hand instead of being injected under your skin. You get to keep it in your pocket, in fact it even has a GPS to track your where-abouts. Doesnt this scare anyone at all? Read apples disclaimer on the legal page of the iphone. They know where you are at all times and this is AT&T information they are entitled to. What has happened to our freedoms and privacy? I know you may say, that they need all the info to make sure you will pay your bill. But what happened to the logic that if you dont pay your bill your service is turned off? Just like not paying cable, or the water bill? Best feature of iphone 3G for AT&T is, they get your information a whole lot faster than 2.5G. The old advertisement use to say, "where do you (does Microsoft) want to go today? Now the shoe is on the other foot, AT&T asks, where are you going today and do you have our permission? Just a thought; AT&T's biggest concern is not about paying your bill, it is just a reason to get all the info on you they can and have you in their data base and know all about you for future control purposes. Talk about invasion of privacy? But then again, who has always wanted to know more about you than AT&T? Answer is, no one, except the govt. Who does the govt. information bidding? Doesn't this bother anyone? If it does, please let us know why it bothers you?
