    Thanks for sharing the information and keeping this story at the forefront. It's been reported that in the case of T-Mobile these "IQ Agent" modules are buried in T-Mobile's "My Account" app.

    Does this apply to all BBs on T-Mobile or only from a certain year on?

    Thank you, again. I checked mine, and there's no Carrier IQ app, and no IQ Agent module or anything resembling such.

    I do have one concern however. I found the referenced "removing third party apps" knowledge base article, but I can't find this quoted part in it or any mention of Carrier IQ in RIM's knowledge base. (I searched.) Could you please provide a link to a RIM article that mentions IQ Agent?
