    1. carrier iq is a software that record everything you do on your phone and sends it to the service provider.
    2. Almost every company that uses this software has it on all their phones, Verizon said it does not have it.
    3.i think when you get the phone and turn it on for the first time it should ask you if you want it on your phone if you say no it does not record anything

  2. 1. Carrier IQ is a piece of software installed into millions of mobile phones that logs everything their users do from what websites they browse too what their text messages say.
    2. Millions and Verizon Wireless claims that it does not use the Carrier IQ.
    3. No i do not think that is needed for the ever changing technological landscape. I also do not think that a company should be allowed too log everything you do with your phone because a phone is a very personal private thing too most people and that should be respected.

  3. carrier 1q is an anonymous diagnostic tool used to display different information to the company and they collect and store the data on your

    it says about 150 million mobile devices currently have it installed on Verizon clams to not have it in their manufacturing line

    i agree that it should be allowed the data is not sent to any of the carriers its just used to determine where their are problems and whats the best way to fix them its easily deleted by anyone with a detailed knowledge of their phone
