I'm curious as if some of you have even looked at the maps, or have really thought about it. I looked at mine, and they can get a general idea of where I've been, but it had me in Nevada which I've never been to (I live in MO) and it has me using thousands of towers in the midwest, that I've never been close to. To filter through it all, would take forever so more power to them. ALSO, you guys are freaking out over location being tracked. Have you heard of 911? How do you think they find you when you wreck your moped trying to take it off some sweet jumps in the mountains? It is Naive to think you aren't at least in some way being "watched/tracked/stalked/whatever you want to call it" in todays society. Not everything is being done just to make your life miserable. I for one would rather worry about gas prices than someone knowing where I go camping.
*btw, every time you use your cc, debit card, id, etc you are essentially being tracked. Don't believe me, look at your bill or history, every location you used it was tracked. Now someone needs to go sue those companies cuz you didn't authorize them to keep a record of where you were. *rolleyes*

Matter of fact is someone is tracking you. Now this may not harm me yet, but devices like this in future may be abused by someone! ATT & any other provider collects the data but that data is accessible only with a Warrant, while the iphone data file is on the actual phone and it may be abused in many ways, lost phone, data backups, exploits etc etc...
It's not about if its tracking your bathroom brakes or mc donalds drive trough food pickup, its about privacy and how little we have it now.
I really hope they WIN! Heck it will be a perfect example to the big corporations what they can and can't.

Also, the two men are seeking refunds claiming they would not have purchased the phones if they had known about the data collection.
The question still remains though: Who is going to serve Steve Jobs his "notice of suit" legal papers. Or who even gets served those papers?
If it is in fact Jobs, how does one go about getting him to confirm his identity before servicing said papers?
'I hear that aint neither Obama or Jobs is citizens'
I'm thinking that you ask him if he is 'Steve Jobs', he says 'yes', you hand him his papers -- toss in a gratuitous, 'You been served' -- fill out your 'proof of service' doc, turn it in and you're done.
Here, maybe you can volunteer to help them out since you seem to be starstruck over this.
Apologies for the extra helping of sarcasm but, I enjoy news without hyperbole. Anything more than that and I might as well be watching Fox or MSNBC.

Good! Hopefully apple will be stuck paying some mega $$ to some lawyers. That will make sure other manufacturers (and apple) remove this non-sense tracking from my future devices. Good riddance!!!

Its not that far off. What do you do when you are wrongfully accused of a crime just because you happened to be walking by.

What a pair of all-too-happy-to-sue douchebags.
You can't sue against someone doing something that you read and CONFIRMED YOU READ in an app's terms and conditions.
A list of mobile phone towers that you have been connected to in a text document that is updated every time you sync is HARDLY the same as someone tracking your current movements live as some people seem to think.
It's weird how no-one cared about this 18 months ago :/
Just reading through this thread is infuriating. The worst thing that can be done with your data is that some adverts on your phone are for your local [shop name] rather than the nationwide [shop name] or that it is shown where there isn't BUT SHOULD BE more mobile phone towers.

This is pathetic, if people reed their iphone current "Terms & Conditions" they wouldn't get to this point.. People have to always be against it when they find something out.. You should be glad apple is seeding all this iphone users location data, maybe if 'The law" accepted this it would help with solving crime quicker and help founding lost sources quicker.. I think this is a good idea, at the end of the day what you got to hide "unless if you a CRIMINAL"? I got Nothin'!!! Now... Have you people who is trying to sue Apple?

those defense this **** are the typical apple's fan boys that will take whatever ishit that apple put out.
talk about terms and condition... if apple put in thier term and condution that they will come rape and then kill your family if you blindly click accept... does it mean that apple will do that? i think not because everyone know thats ILLEGAL. It is the same deal.
Also, dont you still get charge 15% restocking fees when you return the iphone? Even if you dont agree to thier terms and conditions?
It is not that no one care about this last year. It's just that not a lot if people know about this. Apple's fan boys really need to learn to use thier minds and make informed decisions.

Never heard of something called an unfair contract ?
Ultimately, I support the Locationgate suit.
Not because I give a ssh*t about tracking, but because of Apple's repeated arrogance : -
"You're holding it the wrong way"
"The iPad Wifi issue is a problem with your router"
... and a million little things they do that say "Screw you - we're Apple and accountable to no-one".
Other than which, they're always suing someone else.
Give them a dose of their own medicine.
Sadly, they will remain as - if not more - arrogant than before the L-Gate judgment.
But I do need a few extra bucks myself - anyone want to start a class-action suit ?
The difference from a year ago is that with iOS 4.3, the info is user-accessible.

Unfair or unreasonable contracts are not binding - regardless of whether you read the smallprint.
I can sign a contract with smallprint stating that Apple can do something perfectly legal but ethically unreasonable - and it ain't worth diddly-squat if it's ruled non-binding.
So, no luck required.

You are in the wrong for blindly accepting it, regardless of if you like what it is or not.
Do you think that Apple are allowed to put something illegal into the Terms and Conditions of the world's most popular desktop media player?! No. No they aren't.
I'm glad to be a 'fanboy' if that means that I'm not a narrow minded, 'trigger happy' mentally defective child like some people on this forum.
"I'm suing Apple for perfectly legally storing a log on my computer of mobile phone towers I have connected to. They told me they were doing it and it might save my life when I'm kidnapped but I don't want them to know that I keep on using a mobile phone tower that's near my affair's house.
I want a billion million $$$ for damages."
Good luck with that
