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

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.
    None of those guarantee privacy. Those refer to the penumbras of the law and were used to create an artificial right to privacy. Technically it doesn't exist in the Constitution, but that is almost irrelevant to this who issue. The fact is that Sprint has no choice under federal law, but to comply with law enforcement.

    They sure can! BBM goes through servers controlled by RIM hence if they wanted to read what you were saying they could. One of the issues with RIM and selling their phones in China is that the Chinese wanted to have the servers located in China to prevent this very issue.
