Phone companies sell your phone records

Don't they just get your number from you and then buy the data from the carriers? How could carriers be filing suits then? If that is the case - I think the best way to regulate this would be to make the carriers responsible for protecting our data.

This must be how Paris Hilton's cell phone records were publicly released? I think I am safe though - I doubt anyone cares who I'm talking to.
