In addition to disabling carrier data collection, I went through all the
default apps to turn off any permissions I didn't like.

In doing so, I noticed that the carrier diagnostics-collection application
*inherently* still showed it had innate permission to the phone's location.

By flipping the "location" switch from "on" to "off", I think I ensured
that the carrier wasn't checking in on my location from time to time via
its "system manager application":
