Do you turn off your carrier diagnostics collection on your cell phone?
http://i.cubeupload.com/tVhE53.png

I don't have an iOS phone, but, monthly, I reset my T-Mobile Android phone
to factory defaults.
http://i.cubeupload.com/K0KITq.png

Invariably, the question comes up by T-Mobile diagnostic software of
whether I want the cellular carrier to collect diagnostics, or not:
http://i.cubeupload.com/AgFoIL.png

When I press for "more information", I'm taken to this web page:
https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-2929

Which explains:
"What types of information does T-Mobile collect?
Device signal strength
System crashes
Dropped calls records
Battery performance
Application usage"

That web page suggests I download this T-Mobile app:
http://www.t-mobile.com/landing/down...obile-app.html

Which I never do because I already have the T-Mobile "System Manager
Application", which says:
"This software collects diagnostic data..."
http://i.cubeupload.com/YmIxZZ.png

To disable data collection, go to:
Settings Accounts BAckup and reset Collect Diagnostics
Turn off the checkbox "Allow Diagnostics"
http://i.cubeupload.com/f166HH.png

*My question for Android users:*
Q: Do you turn off the carrier diagnostic data-collection software?
http://i.cubeupload.com/tVhE53.png

My question for iOS users:
Q: Do the carriers do the same data collection on iOS phones?

In addition to disabling carrier data collection, I went through all the
default apps to turn off any permissions I didn't like.
http://i.cubeupload.com/m1cZWG.png

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":

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

*inherently* still showed it had innate permission to the phone's

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

You're wrong, as always.

No one except you is actually that stupid.

*My question for iOS users:*

Nope.

On my VZW-branded Moto Droid X2 there's no option to turn that on or off.

Thank you for both *understanding* the question, and answering it like an
adult should.

I am only familiar with T-Mobile diagnostic services.
You are on Verizon.

I wasn't sure from your response whether you were saying that Verizon
doesn't bother to *collect* the diagnostic data - or - if you were saying
that Verizon *does* collect the data - and that you were not able to turn
that collection off.

In short, can you clarify if you were saying that Verizon doesn't have the
data-collection software? Or if you were saying Verizon does have the
data-collection software - but you can't turn off the data collection like
you can with T-mobile?

Wih my iPhones on Verizon it is simple enought to go to
"Settings-"Privacy"(scroll to the bottom)-"Diagnostics & Usage" there
you find that it is Apple, not Verizon requesting the data. You have
the options to "Send Automatically" or "Don't Send". You are free to
choose whichever you want.

At the bottom of that settings window you will find the current status
and a tap selection to view the currently accumulated "Diagnostics &
Usage Data".

*all* cellular carriers collect diagnostic data regardless of the type
of phone (smartphone or candybar/flip), such as when and where calls
drop, so that they can see where they need to fix things.

No. Fortunately, there is no history of mental illness in my family, no
paranoia.

I have a similar setting in my Verizon Droid. Motorola (now a Lenovo
product) collects the data.

Switch 1 says: "Help Improve Motorola Products Share device usage
statistics".

Switch 2 says: "Enhanced Device Support Enable customized support and
recommendations for your device".

And you can get a Motorola ID: "Motorola can provide you with a more
personalized experience by identifying you across devices".

All very lovely words, don't you think? 8-O
