actually the companies themselves don't have access to your txt messages. My friend and I spoke with some Tmobile reps a couple years ago because he was afraid that his parents would start tracking his txt messages. The guys we spoke with said that they wouldn't even be able to see what he sent through txts, they have no record of that.
Ya I'm sure the TMobile reps know all about the secret underworkings of thier company.
Seriously I bet all the AT&T reps were spewing the same bullshit until CNN had a special about "The Box."
For instance, I worked at a bar that had rabbit on the menus. People would ask where it came from, I would give the supplier name(Where I thought it was actualy coming from)
Two weeks after that I found all the cage traps outside the back of the bar...... Just because someone tells you something doesn't mean it's true. (Basicly the rabbit meat came from "The Streets".)
