Default Re: Carrier IQ (Spyware) on Blackberry?

I realize this isn't proof but the article below implies a BB device has been seen with it or some variant.

How much of your phone is yours?

Right now, it is difficult to see just how many phones have a variant of CarrierIQ on them, or how they are being used. Test applications have been found for Blackberry, specifically the 9530, and the Nokia n97-1 and Series 60 devices as well, though those phones are a little more difficult to go browsing around to see how the apps are being used. Nowhere on any of these devices are you, the user, shown or given control over what information is being collected, nor do you have the ability to opt-out anywhere.
The Search tool and BlackBerryFAQ answer many questions.
