Welcome to Vodafone Community
Has Vodafone UK got any connection with Carrier IQ or have there phones ???
As in the states a Software developer Exposed a security risk with HTC phones also found a similar whole, were Carrier IQ was on the devices and use to transmit data about what customers are doing
The company tried to put a Gagging order on the Developer but failed
Carrier IQ http://www.carrieriq.com/index.htm has now been exposed and one of the networks so called secrets
But also shows as to what lows Networks stoop to
Now I hope we do not have this company operating in the UK as it would breach the Data protection act, and Business will not be happy, as this would be a breach of security
I no Vodafone Portugal have
Solved! Go to best answer.
Of all the UK networks I would least suspect Vodafone of having any affiliations with this company/service.
Best waiting for an official confirmation from James though.
It has opened alot of peoples eys as to what is going on with out us Knowing
And as they tried to Gag the developer from saying anything
This does affect the USA more then us but as we do not see what is transmitted on our bills we do not Know
Thanks Tom for the info, But on XDA they are checking every firmware as they know what to look for so lets hope its not on UK Firmware.
Thanks for checking again Tom
Good to know that Voda UK have never used this service. I've read something of what's going on but, I have to admit, I'm not that knowledgeable about it. Suffice to say what I did read worried me somewhat and now my worries have been eased. :smileyhappy:
Well for all that want a bit more info
CNETs Android Atlas Video Blog talk about what is going on
Now i also have got the same answer as Tom From Samsung and it is not on Any Samsung Firmware that Vodafone have done.
But were checking the others which if they have it could be intresting
Now on the Android Atlas they mention its on stock firmware, Only in the U.S it is behind a Partition But on the Samsung Galaxy range that is easy to wipe
Other Android devices are a bit more of a challange
But a Big To Vodafone on this
And cheers Tom for Looking in to this, Other Networks have not yet Comented
Well done N-dj for asking such a great question!
Also, well done to Vodafone, (Tom) for being so quick and clear with the response.
This is the eForum operating at it's best... Nice!
If i have a UK contract, and roam to Portugal, are you breaching my contract assuming VF Portugal is using CarrierIQ
As far as i am aware you would need to have CarrierIQ software installed on your phone. Vodafone UK do not do this so assumeing your using a Vodafone UK branded handset you will be ok
