You can add a whole carrier's portfolio to the list of devices uninfected by the Carrier IQ drama. Verizon Wireless has just come out and reiterated that it does not use the smartphone tracking software. Jeffrey Nelson, part of the company's Communications team, has tweeted a reminder that Verizon does not use Carrier IQ and that it "made this clear 2 weeks ago." At that time, Carrier IQ hadn't quite managed to brew up the storm of controversy that it has done since, so it's good of Jeffrey to provide us with this refresher. So, Verizon phones are in the clear. All the other major US carriers, not so much.
