    ok the evo 3d just got an update for the removal of carrier iq and now according to phone arena the evo 4g, the evo design 4g and the samsung epic are getting updates this week well the epic is rolling it out now

    and the samsung replenish just got the gingerbread update an i believe there is no carrier iq in it

    so my question is are we gonna get the carrier iq removal update and will it include the fixed gingerbread and when

    i hope we do

    OTA updates are coming to the HTC EVO 4G, EVO Design 4G, and Samsung Epic 4G - adios Carrier IQ?

    You got more faith in Sprints abilities than me! But I admit, Id love have my pessimism quashed.

    I read on the interwebs that it will be removed in LG's official ICS update for the Optimus S, which will also add 4G LTE functionality.

    I Highly Doubt That The Optimus S Will Have 4G LTE. & IDK About That ICS Update Ether. If The Gingerbread Was Really Buggy Than I Bet The ICS Will Be Too. Because The Optimus S Procsser Is Only A ARMv6 But ICS Will Need A Much Faster Processer (ARMv7)

    Sprint and LG have had plenty of time to fix the failed Gingerbread update. The fact that they pulled the update and then just abandoned it doesn't make things look to cheery for an update with Carrier IQ removed.

    It has only been a month since Sprint announced that they told their suppliers (whose developers, I'm sure, do most of the work) to remove Carrier IQ from *all* of Sprints supported phones (and, of course, those on the horizon to be released).

    http://forums.androidcentral.com/spr...-hardware.html

    Along with Sprint, LG also has other customers to support. And there was that Christmas/New Year holiday.

    Expecting a bug free and Carrier IQ free Gingerbread? that's asking a lot.

    I'll stick with my guess from a month ago -- the next Optimus S update is Carrier IQ free Froyo.

    Releasing GB for the Optimus was just an attempt to toss a cookie to Sprint users since they haven't had an interesting Android phone to release for some time.

    But yes, now it is 4 months later. And the Optimus is 4 months closer to obsolescence, which makes it even more unlikely that we'll see GB anytime soon, if at all.
