Captain, its been a while since I used GB but I believe it has CIQ. One way to check is install this app, Lookout Carrier IQ Detector. You can also look and see what apps you have running. CIQ will be System Manager Application (com.carrieriq.tmobile).

The only way I know to stop it is to be rooted and using Titanium Backup Pro to freeze it. You could also uninstall it but freezing is probably the safest.
