HTC Updated EVO 3D and removes the Carrier IQ

16 January, 2012 HTC

Evo 3D


Last week, Sprint rolled out an update to its HTC EVO 3D handset but what many people did not know was the upgrade removed the controversial software Carrier IQ. Before this upgrade, The Now Network was reported to having somewhere north of 26 million devices carrying Carrier IQ, so this maintenance update shrinks that number down some.


Sprint has 15 other devices carrying the diagnostic analysis software and most people do not expect them to remove it from those handsets. Carrier IQ may have gotten a bad rep from all of the negative publicity its received over the last few months.
