No worries. It is very likely that she is grandfathered in; I remember when the merger happened and I thought I was going to get a "circle" but it didn't happen.

I don't disagree that Verizon is evil, I just don't think they have anything to do with this and your initial post was incorrect in some basic facts so I assumed fanboy. :-) That doesn't appear to be the case and I do apologize.

It's interesting that you said it was because of Verizon, because on my Droid Google Voice is allowed. I can't vouch for the "my 5" fave list removal, because I don't have a fave list. You mention that it is available on all plans and that is not true. At least for family plans, you must be on a plan that has at least 1400 minutes. My wife and I have a plan with 700 minutes and it has no option for any numbers. And it is 10, not 5.

Your post seems to be FUD, but I'll let others decide for themselves.

So at what point in the post above is proof offered that the ISP serving take down notices will ultimately lead said ISP snooping any and all data for any third party that asks for it?

I also fail to see how my suggestion that it is slippery slope/fallacy is off-topic. It is entirely on-topic; I am suggesting that the reply to my initial comment is not valid. Maybe I was incorrect with my assertion, but that doesn't make it off-topic! ::face palm:: *this wasn't directed at fredklein, but I didn't want to make another post.
