I use my Blackberry in place of a wireless card for my laptop (tether feature). I connect to the internet using Verizon's Wireless Broadband service. I would like to know if Verizon or the company that gave me the phone can track or know what I am looking at when I'm using the tether feature. Thanks in advance.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

No acctualy they cannot because of privacy issues and all major phone companies folloed AT&T with their privacy law so coustomers may be drawn in. THE ONLY WAY for the phone company is to ever look at your internet usage is if a police investigation is underway and the president of the company and the owner of the phone agree.

    Your cell phone company most definetly can. Depending on what's setup within your companies blackberry server and what options they have selected with your cell phone provider they may be able to see what sites you have gone to.
