Creepy. Big Brother is Watching.

Just got this text from T-Mobile.

This is how you know that your cell phone provider is monitoring everything you do and every app you install or uninstall:

I have a T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy SII which has been rooted for almost a year now, with the "System Manager" T-mobile application forcibly uninstalled via Titanium Backup Pro. "System Manager" (com.carrieriq.tmobile) was said to be the CarrierIQ app, which received a lot of negative press for being a security/privacy risk last year, which some said was overblown.

This text message really makes me wonder just how much information it collected and shared with the mothership, for T-mobile to specifically send a text message and confront its user about uninstalling it.
