Verizon Spying

Verizon Spying: Windows Phone 8 Cancelled Over Privacy Invasion? Verizon spying on its customers isn't limited to their new privacy policy -- they want to be able to remotely control your devices as well, and Microsoft isn't happy about that.

 The new line of Windows Phone 8 that is slated to launch in the coming weeks may not after all, as the two sides continue their dispute.

According to a report by the Daily Mobile, Verizon is unhappy over the lack of control it has over HTC's Windows Phone 8X, Nokia's Lumia 920 and Nokia's Lumia 820. Verizon requires the company be able to remotely manage all handsets -- a request Microsoft is refusing.

If the two sides cannot come to an agreement, it's possible that Verizon spying could lead to no Windows phone for the carrier.

"Windows Phone 8 software will not allow Verizon proper device management," the Daily Mobile reports. "Verizon phones are required to be able to be accessed remotely for provisioning purposes and such. Apparently WP8 phones do not meet that requirement so Verizon can not use any WP8 phones in its current state. This matter is so serious that if this remote access is not granted the devices can enter a state, albeit rare, that they stop responding to certain systems on the Verizon network."
