I just found out that I have been paying my Sun PostPaid bill that has Text Copy on it. stupid me for finding out just now.

I inquired about this feature from Sun Customer Hotline. Basically, all incoming text messages that my phone receives is copied thru either someone else's email or cellphone number.

So everytime I receive a text, someone gets a copy and I pay P1.- for each text that I get.

My question is, is this even legal? Reading Article III of 1987 Philippine Constitution, Under Section 2 and 3, can this be considered as invasion of privacy?

And why does a telecom giant have this type of feature? is it even legal?

If so, how can I go about on filing for a legal complaint about this?

TIA

Good day. Ang text copy ay puwede lamang magawa ng may-ari ng cellphone at hindi ng sun cellular network. ginagamit ko kasi itong features na ito para malaman kung ano ang mga text na dumadating sa cellphone ng asawa ko at macopy sa cellphone ko. Pero from time to time, dinideactivate ko ang features na iyon sa cellphone niya para hindi siya magtaka na bakit malaki ang bill niya. Pero nong nagdamot na siyang ibigay at idisplay ang celphone niya, di ko na magawang magtext copy sa cp niya. kinausap ko ang sun cellular dahil sa akin nakapangalan pareho ang subscription kung puwede nilang iprogram sa computer nila na itext copy ang mga messages ng mister ko sa aking number. Sabi ng sun cellular ay hindi ito maaari dahil ang may control lang nito ay ang nag-mamay-ari ng celphone dahil may mga code siyang isusupply. Palagay ko ay may gumamit ng features na yan sa celphone mo ng hindi mo nalalaman, maaaring iyong kasambahay din.
Sana magkaroon ng liwanag ang iyong katanungan. Salamat.
