    I'm usually not one to put on the tinfoil hat, but it seems more than appropriate here. I'm rooted. Any instructions on how to remove this crap?

    If you're rooted, it has most likely been disabled by the developer of whichever ROM you're using. I'm not sure our phones even came with this installed in the first place, but you can always PM the developer and ask if you're curious.

    I can't believe they log passwords!!! How can I find out if my HTC Incredible 2 has Carrier IQ installed?

    This is some shady stuff. Not that I have anything to hide, but yeah, definitely leaves one feeling a little insecure.

    The article I read today stated that Verizon does not use Carrier IQ software on any of their phones, I will have to look for it and find the link, in the meantime I will read the article of the original post...

    We dodged the bullet the last time with the massive security breach article exposing the hTC sense logger file.

    Found it here...

    I just run stock rooted. I don't bother with ROMS.

    Download "AnyCut" from the market. Look for anything with"IQ" in it.

    This Carrier IQ company must have a VERY large database/serverfarm to handle/process/store all this information coming from all the phones it is on.
    That is a astronomical amount of data.
    I work at an online shipping company and I know what we have to process all our info, I just can't imagine how big their processing network is!

    That assumes that all of the data is sent. Even if the data is logged, I'd be surprised if all of it, or even close to all of it, is sent.

    And you just outright believe them? LOL

    No way - I won't believe that statement from Verizon until I've seen it proven by a 3rd party. CiQ stated they don't log anything, but it's been overly proven they do.

    I have been following threads on various forums about this topic (forums cellular related and not) and no one with a VZW phone has it on their phone.

    That certainly gives significant credibility to their statement. And, VZW knows full well that if it's on there people will find it, so there's no chance they would make such a matter of fact statement regarding it if it weren't true.

    Are they using somebody else's product to do the same thing? Maybe. Are they using CarrierIQ? No chance.

    I wish Verizon would make this available to me so I could prove to them that their network sucks. They lost a tower in downtown Sisters, OR and it took me three trouble tickets over six weeks to get them to look at it.

    There's an app you can run on your phone to check. I checked my DInc2. It found nothing for whatever that's worth.

    There's a some truth to this too.. I've run TrevE's app a while back and it came back clean (assuming I ran it properly), but I'm also on a rooted CM7 Dinc with a few extra mods. Ok - I'm fairly certain MY device is clean, but that's not to say that I trust Verizon. That's not to say there's "no chance."

    Only time will tell. I think the next few weeks will be quite interesting as this thing is blowing up rather quickly. In just the last hour, there were 10,000 downloads of Trev's app. Whoa... there's a lot of paranoia out there today!

    I think today is the day I go into business selling tin hats for smartphones!
