Verizon has been known to have no corporate social responsiblity. They recently released their latest scheme for earning the extra buck at your expense. They have included a notice in recent billings that they will sell subscribers their Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI) to “third parties and affiliates” unless you opt out in 30 DAYS.

Adobe PDF version of the notice

CPNI is (Customer Proprietary Network Information) is information that telecommunications services such as local, long distance, and wireless telephone companies acquire about their subscribers. It includes not only what services they use but their amount and type of usage.

Third parties can use this information for targeting solicited text messages and phone calls to you.

I advise all Verizon subscribes to opt-out by calling:


You will need to enter your #, billing zip code, and last four digits of your SS# into the automated system.
