Nothing on my Galaxy S II, stock Samsung firmware.

I'm I right in thinking this is limited to the US?

The topic vanished because it's out of most of our hands. It's up to the courts and government to weigh in on it, now.

I also bet that all companies that are involved are also removing CIQ from their products. If another device releases after the new year with CIQ, I bet that device would sink fast.

Okay, my dopey Optimus, which Iíve had for about a year, came with CIQ pre-installed and displayed its nasty privileges the whole time. The video that recently got this storm started doesnít reveal any earth-shattering information beyond what was already available.

I assume these same conditions are true for a lot of phones besides mine, and for a longer time than Iíve had mine. So why is it suddenly a problem that must be fixed right away, even though nothing has changed in over a year?

Sorry to take what appears to be the wrong side in this, but I really donít see an emergency, I see a media-driven lynch mob.

Exclamation ** attention! Carrier iq! You may have it! **

Hello,

I've come across some disturbing news about carrier iq access from Androids, where your carrier has embedded a program in it where it logs every single key press with the ability to send it off the phone.

I've checked my phone out and it appears clear. I've used the lookout carrier iq detection app along with a few others (just to be sure) from the market. Does anyone have any thoughts on carrier iq of how serious this issue is? Especially you more senior members or moderators?

From what I've read it would be wise to check your phone out and see what comes of it.

Let people know what's affected and not affected for peace of mind.

Ta, Mike

I merged your thread into the main CIQ discussion thread here, just so no one gets confused why this seems out of step with the rest of the thread.

Today's blurb. Yankee research has found that most people favor CIQ or something like it.
Carrier IQ aside, the public may want their phones tracked &mdash; Tech News and Analysis

Who in hell did they survey? Obviously not anyone from a group like this or with any cell phone knowledge.

If CIQ ever allies itself with Phorm - ------
(you fill in the blanks)

I also don't know what kind of survey they did, but I don't mind being tracked. What I mind is a secret piece of software tracking stuff without letting me know or having me agree to it or having a written privacy policy that's readily accessible, or tracking things it doesn't need to be tracking in order to improve performance or service. I also don't like tracking stuff that cannot be disabled by the user without drastic measures (rooting the device, for example)--it should be a simple setting you click on or off.

It seems that there are some apps can help you to detect the Carrier IQ, but I don't know whether there is an app can delete it.

FBI rejects FOIA request for Carrier IQ info - Computerworld
This says that info can't be released since info is in a case under judgment or review. No one has proved the FBI is using it.

Did someone involve the FBI in the lawsuit?

I can see snoops drooling over this.

I do not want to be tracked. My favorite saying since 5th grade was "none of your business"
Law and legal can find you without tracking - and marketers can go to hell.

I despise CIQ as much as the next guy, but I think I can wait an extra couple of weeks to let people have their vacations.

Here's one I found today:
AT&T Says Customers Agreed to Carrier IQ Software

Related to "secret room"?

If you have an ATT contract, please check it to see if this is a valid article.

If the article is right, then getting rid of this should be part of the buyout.

Why don't you ask Sprint for more info? Get it direct.
