Devin Coldewey reports more on the OnStar kerfluffle that got some Senators involved:

Faced with a flurry of criticism from users, sites like this one, and even Congress, OnStar has gone back on at least one of the changes.

They relate the update in a brief press release:

OnStar announced today it is reversing its proposed Terms and Conditions policy changes and will not keep a data connection to customers’ vehicles after the OnStar service is canceled.

If OnStar ever offers the option of a data connection after cancellation, it would only be when a customer opted-in, Marshall said. And then OnStar would honor customers’ preferences about how data from that connection is treated.
