Verizon Begins Tracking Cellphone Activity: Web Use, Location, and Apps - International Business Times

Thought this was pretty crappy, especially the fact that you have to manually opt out of this (which I did right away). Again sorry if this was already posted just thought everyone should know about it.

You can Opt out all you want, they still collect the data for their own use. All carriers do it.
They just wont sell some of your data to anyone. Read the fine print.
