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

It doesn't make sense that it would be HTC's fault as no other version of the M8 is experiencing the issue. Also, the “carrier” in Carrier IQ makes your story even less believable.

The question is, is ATT smart enough to not include it in the lollipop release, or will it be part of the added bloatware that they seem to enjoy.

I give you props for being the brave soul to step out on this ledge. If this is an HTC issue that, only AT&T customers are having, I find it EXTREMELY difficult to believe AT&T, the 3rd largest telecommunications company in the world doesn't have the "power" to demand HTC fix the problem. Doesn't AT&T care enough about their customers to light a fire under HTC or do they just not know how to fix this and save face? Either way, it doesn't bode well for AT&T customer satisfaction. When you're one of the largest telecom companies in the world, what's a few thousand dissatisfied customers with dead phones, right?

I've noticed that the GPS icon comes on when switching between 4G and LTE, turning on airplane mode or when a phone call ends.
My guess is that AT&T is gathering diagnostic data about signal quality and call quality relative to your location [so they can boast about it in their awful commercials]
When connectivity changes, it must trigger Carrier IQ to poll your GPS location to add along with a bunch of other data that it sends back to AT&T.

I've heard that lollipop update cause battery drain for some people, which been my experience with every major update. This is the last phone that will ever update to the newer software. As for the GPS and the IQ spyware, no one is saying anything yet. Either everyone is waiting for anyone else to do it first or its too early. I. Wonder if we can get the news media involved; AT&T spying on their customers should make an interesting story.

IQ Agent is still running and still turning on my GPS after the Lollipop update...
This should come as a surprise to no one.
