Ever since the update i have been getting the Dish icon (like GPS) appearing consistently for 10-20 minutes at a time in a given hour. The battery drain since the update is horrible. Go to work, look at my phone 2 hours in and its at 50% battery. Go into manage apps and see Agent IQ under android services. says its running for over 24 hours? when i try to stop the app. It stops for about 3-5 minutes and then is initiated again. I have no GPS on , no auto update apps....what the heck.... tried the hard reboot after stopping the program and nothing....this is getting to be ridiculous. Any one else having the issue? i see it in other forums about the ATT update/Agent IQ issue but nothing here in the community....weird

Drive mode has nothing to do with it it's an illegal tracking software at&t claims they never heard of carrier iq which I find hard to believe I believe at&t has something to do with this carrier iq installed on every at&t customers HTC One M8 or whatever other phones they have it installed in I been seeing the GPS icon flashing more often now at&t knows what's going on with this carrier iq issue and they refuse to fix it carrier iq is illegal it tracks your keystrokes your text messages your call logs your websites that you visit etc.
Did you actually try to disable Drive Mode (to confirm whether it works or not), as opposed to ranting about legalities?
Yes, we all know the phone has Carrier IQ. But it did before 4.4.4, and it didn't cause this issue. Its a bug related to IQ, but probably also related to other things. As this would explain why it turns GPS on in some conditions, and not others.

you're lucky!! unfortunately, no the issue is still happening...even through airplane mode. Tried the Drive mode suggestion, all location services off, no GPS, Hangouts or others....tried turning off all background data but nothing changes....currently the phone has been off the charger for 57 minutes and currently the charge stands at 42% have the power save on as well....just seems like a lost cause. If i did something with the phone i could understand having these types of programs/malware on the device....but getting this bug installed through a forced update is what is crazy

I have had the exact thing happen. It started about 10 days ago. I never had any problem until then. The GPS icon flashes randomly and it can be stopped by force stopping the IQ agent.
I spent an hour on the phone with HTC and their phone (exact same phone and OS version) did not have the IQ agent loaded.
I attempted to contact enhanced ATT support but they closed my case because I was not able to answer my phone during the day while I was at work.
I talked with 3 different general customer service person and got three different solutions, starting with doing a master reset which didn't clear it, shutting off all apps that might be using GPS, duh I already knew that, and lastly "this is part of the 911 service required by law", nothing we can do.
Well apparently 911 has been on my phone until 10 days ago because this was never a problem before!!!!!!
What is wrong with ATT customer service? Do they want to lose all of their customers???

ATT obviously doesn't care if we remain customers. I have tried several times to get help with this issue.
They say the only way to solve this is a warranty replacement. Back when I was on 4.4.2 and was having voicemail issues, they told me the same thing. I did 4 warranty replacements and nothing was solved.
After the 4.4.4 update, the voicemail started working corretly. Unfortunately now the GPS icon flashes because of the IQ agent service running.
Will 5.0 fix that, or create another issue? Do they care???
