The careers and lives of many many people have been detrimentally affected by this activity which is quite difficult to prove.

My question to you is this: If you found out your employer was accessing your blackberry without your knowledge or permission, what would you do?
Well the blackberry I have is corporate owned. So it is cool by me. Plus if they were accessing my berry, I would know, because I am the BES admin. We actually tried to get Verizon to give us the browsing history of a terminated employee once, but they told us don't collect and store that data (could be BS, but who knows).

You make it sound like the wireless companies are constantly being hacked into and monitored so corporations can gather data on employees. This is false. Wireless companies work very hard to remain secure and when they are breached, everyone finds out (because it makes for good news reports). Not to mention that what your talking about is illegal and no company is going to risk illegal activity just to gather data on some employee they could just fire and be done with.
