Got a new Motorola, and spam increase 300% in 3 days on my computer.  Someone at Verizon is selling our info, even though an agent said it was against their policy.

They sell your email address. I do not receive email on my yet, and may not because of so much spam now. I was down to about 10 spams a day before I bought the phone and it jumped to 40+ and climbing.   Similar when I dropped att for verizon, Robo calls went from about 0 to many.
