Apple, AT&T Seek to Block RadioShack's Sale of Customer Data
Apple and AT&T have filed legal objections to RadioShack's planned sale of customer data. RadioShack sold products from both AT&T and Apple and originally agreed to keep customer data private. RadioShack is going through bankruptcy and hopes to use any potential proceeds of selling customer data to third parties in order to pay off creditors. "Not only is AT&T committed to protecting the privacy of its customers — it is required to do so by federal and state laws and regulations," said AT&T. Several state attorneys general have also filed objections. A judge is expected to rule on the matter May 20. Earlier this year RadioShack sold the bulk of its stores to Sprint, which is in the process of rebranding them.

I don't do business with 3rd parties. Who doesn't have an AT&T store nearby and found it more convenient to use RadioHack? NOBODY. The problem is cheap people. They are the same reason that Wal-Mart is the number 1
Anybody who thinks Apple and ATT dont sell your data...
Their just mad because Radioshack is doing it, and they dont want anyone else monetizing Their customers data but them.
At least RS is being honest about it. Not because they're an ethical company, "ethical corporation" is a misnomer but because they have to, RS doesn't have a T&C for you to agree to surrender all your rights on.
Needs to hire a lawyer for your lawyer to decipher your T&C's. They both use And sell your data at their whim, and you gave them permission to do so.
