    Hello all,

    Carrier IQ is alive and well on the G3 for att. It is disable-able with android tuner as long as you head over to android system and uncheck everything that says IQ in it.

    It'll most likely be on the AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile versions.

    I believe it was a toggle in settings for T-Mobile. You couldn't turn it off on att

    Application manager, then swipe to apps, choose android system, hit open then details then swipe around and look for anything with carrier qi in it and turn it off

    What's odd is that on the g2 we were able to disable from stock app manager,although you had to redo if you rebooted. I think you have to root to use tuner to freeze it?

    Yep, you do need to be rooted. More than fair trade off, hate carrier IQ.

    Sprint came out right after Carrier IQ was released and said they would never incorporate it. Part of the reason I stick with them. They are good about privacy.

    I did a little googling and it sounds like carrier IQ is capable of recording and transmitting everything that happens on the phone, including text messages and keystrokes. I emphasize "capable" because the company line is that they just do what their clients (i.e. AT&T, LG etc) ask. It's mostly a privacy issue.

    My personal view is that if you are really concerned about privacy then your best bet is to root your phone and scrub it down. Even then you're still using the carrier's cell towers so there's only so much you can do.

    AT&T is usually the big bad wolf with this. Verizon doesnt even use CIQ, not to my knowledge. T-Mobile should have it but be disable-able and Sprint doesnt use it either. Its actually listed as a feature on AT&T's website.....

    I found it! I am totally clean now. There is a whole Carrier IQ app called LADDM.apk.

    Look at the processes first it's a whole rats nest of carrier IQ. Froze it first to make make sure it was okay and all was well so I deleted it. All gone, good riddance.

    So root then:
    (For ATT LG G3)

    Use Android Tuner
    Uncheck all Carrier IQ in Android system and then delete LADDM.apk (Back it up just in case). I also went into System lib and deleted the 2 carrier IQ files in there with Root explorer.
