LEARN EVERYTHING ABOUT CELL PHONE SECURITY

 2016 WISP, or Wireless Identification and Sensing Platform: a combination sensor and computing chip that doesn't need a battery or a wired power source to operate.

SMS email on your phone! All you need to know is your cell phone's email address. Most carriers have "SMS gateways" which take email messages from the Internet and deliver them to their customers' cell phones as SMS text messages. In UK you can send texts to home phones. BT calls you and a computer reads it out quite well: http://www.fixedtext.com/.

How to Stop Verizon from giving your information to vendors

 

How to Limit the Sharing and Use of Your Information You have choices about how Verizon shares and uses information.

What can I do if I think my privacy rights have been violated?

Verizon takes your privacy rights very seriously. If you believe that your privacy rights have been violated, please contact us immediately. We will take immediate steps to address your concerns. If you believe that you have been aggrieved as a result of our violation of the Cable Act, you may enforce the limitations imposed on us by the Cable Act through a civil lawsuit seeking damages, attorney's fees, and litigation costs. Other rights and remedies may be available to you under federal or other applicable laws as well.

Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI):

You may choose whether to allow Verizon to share your CPNI within the Verizon family of companies for marketing categories of services other than those you currently have. This choice will remain in effect unless you change it. Verizon customers who do not want their landline CPNI data shared with affiliated companies may call us at the state-specific toll-free telephone number we provide. Verizon Wireless mass-market customers who do not want their wireless CPNI data shared with affiliated companies may call 1-800-333-9956 and follow the voice prompts. National and major account customers of Verizon Wireless and corporate and government customers of Verizon Business in the United States may decline or withdraw CPNI consent by following the instructions in their service agreements or CPNI consent forms with Verizon Wireless or Verizon Business.

Telemarketing:
Federal "Do Not Call" laws allow you to place residential landline and wireless phone numbers on the National Do Not Call Registry to prevent telemarketing calls to those numbers. If you would like to add your numbers to this list, you may do so by calling 1-888-382-1222, or by visiting www.donotcall.gov.

You should be aware that even if you add your number(s) to the federal or a state Do Not Call list, most telemarketing laws allow companies to contact their own customers. If at any time you would like to be removed from Verizon's residential telemarketing list, please let us know by contacting a Verizon customer service representative at 1-800-VERIZON. Verizon Wireless maintains its own separate Do Not Call list. If you would like to be removed from the Verizon Wireless telemarketing list, please let us know by contacting a Verizon Wireless customer service representative at 1-800-922-0204. Please allow 30 days for your telephone number to be removed from any sales programs that are currently underway.

How to turn off Verizon voice mail

 

 

Voice Mail is an included feature that is typically added to your account when you first activate service. Turn off Verizon voice mail so that all unanswered calls go directly to your answering machine.

Call Verizon and have the voice mail turned off.  It took approximately two days.  They do NOT charge for this!

If you do not want to use you voice mail is log in to you voice mail system by calling the access number and change the ring count to 8 then turn on you answering machine and setup the ring count lower then what you have have set on the Verizon mail.

Since the Verizon Voicemail will answer calls to you number when you are using your phone, a second incoming call to your number while your own answering machine is taking a message WILL BE forwarded the the Verizon Voicemail system --possibly giving you recorded messages in 2 places. Note that each increase in the ring count will add 6 seconds to the amount of time it takes to forward the call to the Verizon Voicemail system.

If you really don't what the  Verizon Voicemail system which can handle multiple calls simultanteously (something you own answering machine cannot do), your only option is to phone Verizon's business office and request that they remove the Verizon Voicemail service from your line.
