Smartphones use career IQ software on their user Mobiles, they even see their contact list chat log through these software, they main intent that they put that software on user account to analyze the from which region there most of the customer and what kinda App they most like. This help these Smart-phone companies to make their Marketing Plan. Most of the other companies are offering App for different smartphones like Blackberry Spy which help them to track down any person activities.

EDIT 12/4/2011:

Hi InformationWeek readers! I originally deleted this comment after getting in touch with Mr. Schwartz about some items found in his original article, but removed a note about that after being made aware of the pricy lawsuit threats flung at my fellow developer. In order to protect myself, I chose to bide my time until the threats were made public, at which point there would be essentially no risk to others. I would like to thank Mr. Eckhart for voluntarily taking the risk upon himself, and the EFF for aligning with him. I did not have the protection of the EFF at the time, which influenced my decision.

I would like to note that I never "moved on" at any point - I have been continuing to look into Carrier IQ behind the scenes, and have been providing assistance as necessary to other prominent researchers.

I can be contacted regarding Carrier IQ and other issues via email at, via Twitter (@k0nane/@publik0) or via PM on For members of the media, other contact methods are available upon request.
