I'm just looking at this article and wondering if this is true. Here is a snippet from the article:
The one-page document from the Justice Department's cybercrime division shows, for instance, that Verizon Wireless keeps, for a year, information about which cell towers subscriber phones connect to. That data that can be used to figure out where the phone has been, down to the level of a neighborhood. AT&T has kept the same data continuously since July 2008.
This is the article : http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2011/...s-report-says/
Eventhough this is Verizon, do MTN also store location info?
I know location info (cellid) is stored when the subscriber makes a call but i didn't think MTN were storing location info (cellid) when the phone was in passive mode.
If true, then MTN can basically say where you were for the last however long they keep your records for.
Is that true?
Does this not contravene anti-cyber laws and privacy protection?
