    Lookout came out with an APP to determine if your phone has Carrier IQ installed on it. For more info on Carrier IQ check out THIS article. Basically it's a program that logs everything you do on your phone, including every keystroke, and then sends the info out.

    I posted a link to the Voodoo app yesterday but the description says that it is not complete and cannot be blindly trusted.

    Voodoo has already had 2-3 updates since release. It's by a guy from xda. I'd trust it at least as much as anything from Lookout. Very possible neither one is 100% trustworthy yet.

    Very true, TrevE (the guy who found the Carrier IQ stuff) from XDA also has an app but it only works on rooted phones.

    What is his app? I would imagine that since Trevor found it then his app would be the most accurate??? Right?

    You have to download it through XDA, I'll find it and post a link.

    Edit: HERE is a link to the post on the XDA forums with the app. Below is the QR code from the link so you can download the app directly to your phone.
