Sprint, which has been spared the ire of users largely because it has so far retained its unlimited data plans, has installed Carrier IQ on more phones than other carriers.
Sprint is by far the biggest user of the software, admitting to installations on 26 million devices. Additionally, HTC has, for the first time, directly and publicly addressed the fact that Carrier IQ blames it for the insecure log files found on its devices — though not in a way that’s likely to satisfy unhappy users.
Meanwhile, Carrier IQ continues to play the, “it’s not us, it’s them” game, which is reasonable to extent. Carrier IQ builds the software; the carriers decide how to use it.
