Welcome to the new AT&T Community
We've got a fresh look! Take the tour to see what's new.
I have noticed that the IP address on my iphone is constantly changing. When I post on a message board, in which it posts location based on IP address, the location always changes to various places around the world. My question is, does ATT keep this always changing IP address information saved as to when it was assigned to my iphone? Obviously my home computer would be easy, as it keeps the same IP. But I am curious if ATT keeps logs on the wireless IP info, especially considering ATT doesn't even save text messages due to space needed to save them. Thank you! I am looking for any solid information, we could speculate all day as to the answers.
Thanks youngjm ... So it would basically take a subpoena to retrieve the info.
I am not a lawyer but that is what I would assume.
This site has links to source materials for the various federal laws/statutes for retention of IP mappings
It's apparently 90 days, and getting access to that data from law enforcement is fairly trivial.
Note: I'm not a lawyer, but I play one on the internet.
