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

No one actually gives a flying red **** about what you do.

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

So you get ****ed over regardless of your stupid games.

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":

Nope.
