How hard is it? A warrant is required to obtain you land line phone records so why would a mobile phone record be any different? It's not as if the 4th amendment to the Constitution specifically mentions hard wired telephones. Americans should be demanding their 4th amendment rights & freedoms back from this Government.

In the case of an auto accident in which texting may have been a factor, warrants should not be required. or "impled consent" laws should apply. If you refuse to turn your phone over at the scene of the accident you automatically forfeit your license for one year. I believe that texting while driving is every bit as serious as DUI. At least a drunk or impaired driver can still keep both hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road.
