If you have a Verizon contract, some privacy information is shared by default, you have to OPT OUT of it if you don't want this information shared. First, you must register for MyVerizon on the Verizon website (you probably want to do this anyway for billing purposes and to manage your account). Using the MyVerizon drop down menu at the top, select View All under My Profile, then all the way at the bottom will be Manage Privacy Settings. On that page there are 3 things you can set (individually for each line on the account): Customer Proprietary Network Information Settings Business & Marketing Reports Relevant Mobile Advertising I personally opted out of all these. There's also something about Location Based Services, but there didn't seem to be anything active there on my account.
