Interesting that no Motorola phones are listed as having the software. I've been running Voodoo after each update to check my Atrix, and in no instance has it been found. Seems like no matter the carrier, Motorola's your best bet besides a Nexus for not having CIQ watch you masturbate.

these are all recently launched phones. Not one of them is more than 3 months old. So anyone that hasnt recently upgraded has nothing to worry about. Thats the good news anyways.

Now better news would be Tmo dropping them like a bad habit. Hey while ur at it, drop that hercules and bring us a real SGS2. :)


Sniggs.. Tmo doesnt have any recent moto phones on the line up at all. not one. they are all discontinued and/or on closeout.

i actually ran the lookout carrier iq on the GS2 at work and it said it wasnt on the phone which kinda blew my mind. So if lookout isnt showing it, does it mean its not sending certain data?

Which SGS2 are you running? Its carrier specific so that would make a difference.

What I find interesting is this, didn't BlackBerry say they don't have CIQ in their phones? Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe they were one of the fastest to let the world know they were clean...
