Allow me to opt out and uninstall Carrier IQ and other bloat/spy ware (NASCAR, Facebook, ect.) or I will be opting myself out when I drop you as my carrier.
A disgusted customer

Designated Sprint moderators and administrators may provide guidance or instruction. We trust the admins and moderators to keep the place tidy and you’re expected to work with them when asked.
This whole thing is disappointing. Sprint has gotten way better at customer support, but the handling of this makes them look like Comcast.
With the financial hit they are about to take from Clear Channel, the costt of this is going to hurt them beyond the holiday.
My letter from them on this topic was outright rude and did not inspire either trust or confidence.
Mod, please inform me which of the following resulting in the removal of my post.
1. thanking you for responding.
2. requesting that you comment on the discussion at hand.
3. me expressing my dissatisfaction for the company who i've spoken so highly of for the past 8 years...
Here is the bitter truth from my perspective...yes i do love sprint and request that all of my friends and family use their service. yes i love the quality and plans that sprint provides. But these are the same reasons why i feel the need to voice my displeasure in the recent changes and mishaps on sprints part. I feel i deserve an apology and an answer, if not these two then at least the right to voice my opinion in an open forum. Now again, in hopes of not getting rejected once more, please start providing the answers we need or get someone on here who will...
I came onto these forums for the first time just to express my outrage at the discovery that carrier iq has been installed on my HTC EVO. Mobile wireless service providers should not be legally allowed to force software on user's mobile pcs any more than landline data providers forcing software onto home pcs. I wish our governemnt would have the balls to start legislating for the people and not against us on behalf of so-called "corporate interests", but that will not happen as long as we have so many republicans in power.
An executive level response has been made. It was impolite and contained inaccurate claims. Sprint's employers would be well advised to avoid contradicting that response.
We, however, can take it to the FCC website and file a formal complaint.
An interesting thing is occurring in articles about this. The headlines say that the reaction is overblown, but the body of the articles document the fact that a serious security and privacy threat exists.
I have to root my phone. My worry is the reliability and security of the options for doing that.This is also time consuming. Next week, I will post from a rooted Epic.
