Of course Google told Sprint and T-Mobile not to share data. Google wants to be the only company that has your data and use it :).

Exactly, it's not like there, they first concern is consumer. Buttttt it must be really serious selling for Google to say stop.

Definitely much much better for Apple to know stuff about you. The less google know about you the better as that way google makes less money and will be forced to change its business model to something that is more consumer and competition friendly instead of their current anti-consumer, anti-competition model they have right now.
