  • T-Mobile Installs Carrier IQ On BlackBerry Smartphones

    We figured the whole Carrier IQ business would eventually make every major mobile manufacturer and carrier come out and state their stance on the software. Research In Motion has released a statement making it known they do not install Carrier IQ or allow their carrier partners to do so. Through their unofficial news site, it has been made known that T-Mobile in fact does install Carrier IQ on certain smartphones. As far as BlackBerry users are concerned, they have it installed in all 3 main OS 7 devices carried by T-Mobile.
    • BlackBerry Bold 9900
    • BlackBerry Curve 9360
    • BlackBerry Torch 2 9810
    According to T-Mobile, while they do install Carrier IQ onto these devices, they claim not to use it to keep track of personal data of its users but instead to improve their experience. Issues like dropped calls, battery performance, and application issues can all be monitored through the use of Carrier IQ.

    T-Mobile is able to install this software through the "My Account" app that's pre-loaded onto all its phones. Once a user clicks on the app and accepts the terms and conditions, Carrier IQ begins to have access to the information state previously. If a user never clicks on the My Account app or doesn't agree to the terms and conditions in the app, then Carrier IQ simply will not be enabled on their device.

    A lot of questions still remain as we get more and more information about how Carrier IQ is present in each device from every carrier that enables it. One thing to think about though, if it really goes against RIM's carrier-partnership policy to have Carrier IQ installed in a BlackBerry smartphone, how will they react to this news?
