Vodafone, one of the world's largest cellphone companies, revealed the scope of government snooping into phone networks Friday, saying authorities in some countries are able to directly access an operator's network without seeking permission. The company outlined the details in a report that is described as the first of its kind, covering 29 countries in which it directly operates.
