Privacy, Security, Encryption In order to not end up with ten different posts or endless updates to the previous one, I'm using this post to assemble all the official responses from both carriers and device makers alike concerning the CarrierIQ rootkit/spyware/whatever. Update: Added official statement from HP regarding webOS (see bottom).

I could never understand why you guys always get a subsidized phone from a carrier? AFAIK , buying an unlocked phone in US is pretty much unheard of.

Carrier IQ is only one way in which carriers rape you in the a**. Actively disabling bluetooth is another, intrusive branding and preinstalled crapware and spyware is another. Wake up!
