    I posted this same thing on Android Central and Windows Phone Central to get different perspectives.

    Tonight for the first time I heard of Carrier IQ and apparently by not having heard of it I live in 1995. Depending on who you are and what platform you're on I guess depends on what you think about it. I've read it as spyware and I've read it as just 'meh'. I have seen where Apple gave you the option to opt out as of iOS 5.

    Based on what I have found it tracks information about how you use the phone and sends it back to the phone manufacture. Anything privacy based has the potential to be VERY debated and heated debated. Right now I am not looking for opinions I just want facts...what is it and what does it do? The research I have found comes back with very opinionated articles. I don't want opinions I want facts.

    Can anybody help me please?

    Check out its website: Carrier IQ
    Thank you! I also see many articles about it from 2011 but nobody has an article saying it is no longer in use.

    I understand, but that's because CarrierIQ is still in use. Sure, you can bypass it on the iPhone by disabling the sending of "Diagnostic and Usage" information, but a lot of people, despite the platform, fail to make changes in the settings and simply use their devices as-is.
