Chris H: Welcome to Vonage Support. How may I help you?
Ruben Me: I want you to stop translating and spying on my voicemail
Chris H: I'll be glad to assist you with that today.
Chris H: You would like to turn off the Vonage Visual Voicemail feature?
Ruben Me: more than that. I don't want your software to touch my
voicemail at all. Your translating and storing my voicemails in your
database for the CIA and FBI and the NSA
Chris H: Ok, do you just want to completely turn off the voicemail feature?
Ruben Me: no - I just don't want to you have survalience of my phone calls
Ruben Me: turn off the translation and stop spying on my voicemails
Chris H: I can turn off the Visual Voicemail feature, but voicemail by

off at any time.
Ruben Me: I am looking at the source files and clearly the NSA has

Ruben Me: so is Skype, and cablevision,TW, Prodigy, Yahoo - it is over
400 pages of raw data
Ruben Me: and that is just this zip code
Chris H: Ok.
Ruben Me: Ok now we are just getting snarky
Ruben Me: send me a guarantee in writing that my voicemail and phone
records are not being monitored and given to the government without my

Ruben Me: then find someone who can
