    I have been hearing alot on the news lately about carrier IQ tracking information like keystrokes and URLs on androids and iPhones. Well just so every one is at ease I looked everywhere and could not find the software. Also I figured I would doublecheck so I used trevE's security app that checks for all carrier IQ software on phones and the tests came back negative.

    Yeah I ran TrevE's app to and came back with nothing. Also so far no MetroPcs has it or ROMs for MetroPcs phones have it either. For once Metro is in the clear :D

    I checked my phone for this a few days ago, Metro is not using it. They'd have to raise their rates if they licensed this for their handsets.
