Yeah right...

So if they don't use CarrierIQ, this is not to say they don't use another piece of software under a different name that does the same thing. There's too much at stake here. A cat and mouse game for privacy!
I fear you're right; seems too tempting for Big Red to pass-up. They do have that disclaimer on their web site about privacy and tracking where you can opt out; what does that cover? Anybody know?
