Sprint has given 8 million times customer’s GPS information to law enforcement (sound something like a semi-automatic request).
Nice extract is:
Sprint Nextel provided law enforcement agencies with its customers’ (GPS) location information over 8 million times between September 2008 and October 2009.

The informations was provided at wiretapping and interception industry conference ISS WASH in Washingtown.
