If you are a Verizon Wireless Customer, pay close attention to your mail. We all get those "changes in policies" letter that usually go straight to the circular file but what Verizon Wireless is sending out deserves some attention. Verizon is sending out letters that gives customers 45 days upon receipt to opt out of the information sharing plan. The plan would share all of your carrier related data (billing information, technical data, location and service purchases) with Verizon's affiliates and agents. Essentially turning your account information into an open book for who knows who to see.
Additionally, if you are a paperless customer (good for you) and you go to Verizon's website, the option to opt out of this share plan is listed but the modification isn't available. Unless this changes, paperless customers will need to call Verizon's Customer Service.

Actually, this is the CPNI (Customer Proprietary Network Information) and customers can opt-out by logging in and going to the "My Profilr" tab. Near the bottom, under "Phone Controls" is a link that says "Your privacy is important to us. You have ability to change your privacy(CPNI) Settings. What's This?
View/Edit Privacy(CPNI) Settings " Going to that link gives you the option to opt-out of sharing your info. I opted out after seeing this post.
