Well, here’s a quick heads-up! Are you deciding to buy a new from Verizon? Then, now you’ll get another sticker to contend with upon purchase. Actually, from now onwards, all new phones sold from Verizon will include the label as shown below that warns users about the devices, which have the ability to determine your geographic location. What are you just thinking right now? Let me guess, Verizon is just trying to cover their butts in light of Apple’s recent mobile phone tracking scandal; I’m also thinking the same fact.

Verizon placing location tracking warning labels on all phones

Well, now, let’s not get it twisted, the recent iOS 4 tracking drama of Apple isn’t the first and surely won’t be the last bit of outrage over tracking in general. Already, Apple has been sued by the Federal lawsuit for the iOS location tracking issues. According to my opinion, if Verizon was hesitant about doing this at first, they aren’t anymore. Probably, they see this as a way to omit themselves from any class action lawsuits stemming from the public outrage over Apple’s tracker-gate scandal.

Also, for your kind information, Apple has also denied any dishonesty behind the iOS tracking capabilities.

So, what’s your opinion on this? Do you think that a label is just enough to put this issue to rest. Just don’t forget to share your views and comments on this with us.
