SBC/PacBell Sharing Info

As Dan Gillmor points out an article in the San Francisco Chronicle talks about SBC sharing personal information about you among all its affiliates. I did call and tell them to definitely take me out of that. Their voice mail is a mess with no immediate selection to get to a customer service representative. You’d think a phone company could have a good menu system. So I chose “Orders” thinking that would get me a real person in the quickest amount of time. As soo as I mentioned privacy and personal info, the rep mentioned the article. She knew exactly what I was referring to. It took her a long time, with lots of silencece on her end before she told me I had been opted-out of any info sharing…gee whiz…
