    So why would the FBI want to use Carrier IQ? Partly because some of the information it does collect, including attempted dial-out numbers, location changes, network requests, and SMS data could be useful in a missing person investigation. It’s precisely the sort of data that could help establish a last known location or determine if a person attempted to make phone calls that didn’t connect but were still logged and eventually transmitted.

    It is just an interesting read about details of Carrier IQ saga.
