I think it's even more nuanced than that, as the Griswald v. Connecticut decision ruled the that Constitution protected a right to privacy (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Griswold_v._Connecticut),
but, as you noted, it's not super explicit in the Constitution, and even the extremely explicit stuff (e.g., the right to bear arms) is hotly contested even to this day.
It would be a rathole to go down, but it seems there are actually dozens of similar decisions (http://www.reproductiverights.org/docume...-present).

OK. I didn't know it wasn't real time. That does knock out my burglar idea; but as you noted, they would just hack the web site to find out my sleeping hours after the fact as a meta-data pattern.

Fair enough. I "was" thinking WiFi for some reason, so, you are correct that an IP address isn't involved; yet, something akin to an IP address "is" involved, which is the phone number (actually the IMEI number) of the CDMA device, which, for our nefarious purposes, is essentially the same thing without the geolocation capabilities.
I admit, without geolocation to the IMEI, it's not the same as an IP address (which is more easily geolocated); however, if we wanted to learn how, we could either figure out which cell towers were in communication with the device or, even more directly, we'd simply attack SS7 and obtain the entire downloaded data.
We'd know which cell phone tower and when the cheating spouse went to bed to actually sleep, as opposed to more strenuous activities.

Again, I had forgotten that it's not on the Internet until the data gets to your profile on the web site.
But even so, if I can dial into the ResMed CDMA modem, the "attack" would proceed similarly as if I was hacking through the Internet.
I must repeat that I'm not saying this stuff happens, although, I must also say that I am an avid student of political/war/diplomacy history, and, well, let's just say that only God herself knows more than the NSA about what goes on in this world via our communications networks.

It's not true - you must fight it - every step of the way. If you say that we have no privacy, then you deserve no privacy; but I refuse to say that - and I will fight to the last to maintain my privacy. I log into this web site via TOR for example, just so that my IP address isn't known - and I do a million other things (like never give out my SSN unless it's actually required by law) to protect my privacy.
Anyway, giving up isn't the right answer "for me"; but it may be the correct answer for others - and that I won't argue further as it's not germane to the question of whether "my" provider actually bothers to dial in to check on my stats.
Do you know how to tell if the provider does that?
They never once mentioned that they do.

Actually, I accidentally hit upon a solution that "seems" to work. I just ignore the nag screen. When it asks if I want to turn off the Airplane mode, instead of hitting "No", I just ignore the question.
As long as I'm not fiddling with the controls, I can do that, and it doesn't seem to cause any harm. I only belatedly noticed this by accident, so I will test it for a while simply by ignoring the question, and if that works, then the problem is resolved. Actually the problem resolves itself (unless you want to use the controls for some other reason at that moment).
