I would like to know this too. I'd prefer to not have to root my phone, void my warranty, and make myself ineligible for software updates from sony ericsson just so I can find this out.
Actually I read about this, and I wanted to check my Galaxy S2 LTE, so I heard about this app:
That checks for any evidence of carrierIq on your phone.
Turns out, Rogers phones do have carrier IQ stuff installed, although it's not "active", whatever that means.
Just an FYI.
It has been confirmed on an LG atleast that Carrier IQ is on a Rogers phone, and active. However on the SGS2 LTE, I can confirm, as can many on XDA, that it is not present at all. So it seems to be hit and miss with Rogers phones.
Recently, a application developer leaked some information regarding "Carrier IQ" on smartphone devices via youtube, the video footage is a bit chilling. If you go on youtube and search "Carrier IQ" posted by Trevor Eckhart, 1.9 million views you can see it. I still don't understand who authorizes this program to be installed on our devices recently found out that smartphones may have this hidden application "Carrier IQ," a program that records all the buttons pressed on the smartphone devices, including text messages, emails, etc. It's a bit a of a grey area because it's kind of hard to figure out if a phone has it or not, in addition, I understand that consumers are not given the option to OPT OUT of the program. It is concerning. What I would like to know is if ROGERS phones have the program installed on the devices? Does Rogers strictly excluded this application on their devices from either Rogers end or from the phone company manufacturer, such as Samsung, HTC, Blackberry, iphone, or a third party? Good topic for discussion.
