    Yes it does. I forget where you can see it, but it will be listed in your running services or applications under the title something like IQAgent. Maybe someone else can chime in on exactly where to find it, as mine has been removed for some time now. It was on my list of primary motivations for rooting my phone.

    have you had any problems since rooting your phone? I rooted my evo and evo3d easily but the Los issues are worrying me and I'd hate to ruin a perfectly good phone

    Nope, not that I would call problems. I had 2 total LOS ever, both times while running a custom kernel built from Samsung's source code. Never when running a stock kernel.

    Lots of news on Carrier IQ, so Google it if you want details, but it's basically tracking software that a lot of vendors are installing on their phones. Company says it only captures performance data, but it has the potential to capture any keystrokes.

    LOS is Loss Of Service ... some E4GT owners have seen a bug where your phone loses all connectivity and you have to reboot to get it back. Usually has to do with roaming or a lack of signal for some period of time ... seems like the phone gives up trying to connect and goes to "sleep".

    Im glad the government is involved because this angers me beyond belief. I hope this gets settled in a timely fashion and we get an update to opt out soon. Otherwise, if not, I hope a class action lawsuit ensues cause ill be right in the middle of it.

    The government is getting involved because no one told them about it. They are mad because they've missed out on years of spying.

    Well, everyone's E4GT is going to have it unless you've rooted and removed it.

    So true lol. Google has a lot of stuff back by CIA and other government agencies. If you don't believe me, continue living in the dark. You are tracked and watched more than you would even imagine.

    Root and remove it. I will be doing that soon. I have always known it was there, but just have been to lazy to root. Apple was already caught doing this as well I think? Sadly anything with a data connection can and is used as a method of spying by government agencies. Facebook was funded by the CIA lol.
