    Does this phone have CIQ on it for TMobile?

    Yes it does. But root it and load a custom rom and you will be rid of this garbage.

    It also present throughout the rom and kernel. It is much more than a running app.

    Good to know! It won't be here for long, but didn't see what I had seen on my last GS2. Thanks for the info!

    I have run the app that treve made and it appears that the SGS2X (Telus version in Canada) does not have CIQ.

    The SGS2 I have with AT&T is clean.

    Not actively running. It was disabled for Telus. However the ciq framework is all throughout the rom and kernel. Mr. X from xda has explained this in his development thread for the rooted telus rom and kernel. His rom is truly ciq free

    As long as it is not running (and the tool shows it is not) then I am happy. We will see what happens with ICS comes out from Telus in 2012.
