    2% or not, what happen to freedom of privacy guaranteed by US constitution? Oh yeah I forgot, George Bush decided to re-write it to his liking. I have nothing to hide but the fact that our privacy is being violated without consent and chance to fight a court order is ridiculous IMO. This should grab headlines and disgust people as people shouldn't be allowed to manipulate our constitution willy nilly.

    can you show me, exactly where in the constitution we are guaranteed privacy? The closest i found was the 4th amendment which states freedom of your person, property and papers.
    q.v.The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

    There is no mention of privacy. even though the ninth amendment vaguely suggests it:
    The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

    IDK, sucks, but that is the wording. We need to tell our legislators they will be out of a job if they continue this crap. thats how it will stop.

    Here are some example of how personal privacy is protected by the constitution.

    Privacy of the person and possessions as against unreasonable searches (4th Amendment), and the 5th Amendment's privilege against self-incrimination, which provides protection for the privacy of personal information. In addition, the Ninth Amendment states that the "enumeration of certain rights" in the Bill of Rights "shall not be construed to deny or disparage other rights retained by the people." The meaning of the Ninth Amendment is elusive, but some persons (including Justice Goldberg in his Griswold concurrence) have interpreted the Ninth Amendment as justification for broadly reading the Bill of Rights to protect privacy in ways not specifically provided in the first eight amendments.

    Law enforcement officials at the Federal and local level need warrants to gain access to phone records and location. Even if you turn GPS off your location can still be determined by triangulation, just to a less accurate degree.

    All phone companies are obligated to comply with this when a warrant is issued by a legal authority.

    So in another words, if you are doing something you shouldn't be, and don't want to get caught, turn your phone off.

Also, I believe the 8 million number quoted involves multiple responses to the same request (e.g., police track terrorist bomber by pinging his phone every 3-5 minutes for a week...could be about 2000 responses to law enforcement).

    For account information in general, a subpoena or court order is required. Law enforcement can't just call up and get the information. The only exceptions are made for life threats (kidnappings, etc.) and FBI/Homeland Security investigations (most of which are reviewed by a special magistrate anyway).

    Add this to the fact that over 270,000,000 mobile phones are in use in America and the number of affected phones is probably less than 2%.

    It's the kind of report that grabs headlines, but is not as sensational or scandalous as it appears.
    2% of all the phones in America but what is the percentage of all the phone's on Sprint's network?
