    Naturally, I am curious about whether Carrier IQ is on my RAZR. VZW says not, however.... doveryai, no proveryai.

    Well VZW has said no and no one has yet to come along and prove otherwise. I understand your skepticism though :)

    What cereal said.

    To be honest don't really care what they see on my phone anyway, got nothing to hide. Or do I.....

    I just tried running the Voodoo Carrier IQ Detection app on two Thunderbolts, a Bionic, and a Rezound and Carrier IQ was not detected. Sprint, however, has publicly stated that they do use Carrier IQ on their phones.
