HTC Evo and Carrier IQ

Dear Sprint, 

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.

Sincerely,

A disgusted customer

This was an interesting topic.  Although I don't agree with all the language used I certainly do understand the frustration.  I also feel I should be able to uninstall any offensive applications.  If they are not critical to the phone operatiion it should be my choice to keep them or not.

But I have not had good luck relying on the "common sense" or ethics of some large corporations.  The way I vote is thru the pocketbook.  Needless to say when my contract is up I'll be looking elsewhere.

Good luck to those who want to root.  It is more work than I want to do though.

Carrier IQ is currently in the process of being removed from Sprint devices. So far several HTC and Samsung devices have gotten updates that remove the Carrier IQ software, among other fixes and improvements.
