    Hello,

    I just bought a used HTC Dream HD (with android 2.3) phone from Craigslist. Can anyone kindly tell me how to check if the phone had been planted with any tracking software (like anti-theft program) running at background?

    It has been really bugging me after knowing the fact that some anti-theft software can remain running and uploading your location and personal data to a third party invisibly...

    Thank you so much for help!

    Welcome to the forums.

    Just do a factory reset and it will get rid of any apps that were installed.
