    The FBI Is Using Carrier IQ Information

    "Well, I suppose this was inevitable: the FBI, via a Freedom of
    Information Act request denial, inadvertently admitted to involvement
    with Carrier IQ. And it won't say how."

    We're going to kill you first, period."

    I have this on my Sprint HTC. I called CS again and the 1st oper.
    didn't even know what I was talking about. She even told me "OMG..I
    don't want that on *my* phone either".

    2nd line manager was aware of Carrier IQ, but not all the data it
    "phones home". I told her I consider this a criminal act of Federal
    wiretapping laws. She did not know how to respond, but I did sense some
    empathy because now -she- is worried about -her- phone.

    I have an open ticket. I need to follow-up now that the legal team has
    had a crack at it (hopefully).

    They were kind enough to tweet a PM saying "CARRIER IQ CAN NOT BE
    REMOVED" (verbatim, yes, in CAPS).

    @Graham

    Fascinating stuff!

    You said "I called CS again"

    Please confirm - who is 'CS'?

    Google didn't help! ;-)
