Default Do you disable carrier diagnostic software on your cell phone?

Do you turn off your carrier diagnostics collection on your cell phone?

I don't have an iOS phone, but, monthly, I reset my T-Mobile Android phone
to factory defaults.

Invariably, the question comes up by T-Mobile diagnostic software of
whether I want the cellular carrier to collect diagnostics, or not:

When I press for "more information", I'm taken to this web page:

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:

Which I never do because I already have the T-Mobile "System Manager
Application", which says:
"This software collects diagnostic data..."

To disable data collection, go to:
Settings Accounts BAckup and reset Collect Diagnostics
Turn off the checkbox "Allow Diagnostics"

*My question for Android users:*
Q: Do you turn off the carrier diagnostic data-collection software?

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