I am downloading the update right now. I will report later on how the phone is working. I do want to get rid of Carrier IQ so I want this.
By the way, Lookout has an app to check if you have carrier IQ. I downloaded it and it told me I have it. I will check again after the update and report.
Apps. It also updated about 25 apps. Almost immediately after I opened the Market, I got notified abut about app updates and wow! It said 25! I have never updated that many ups in one fell swoop. I suppose those are the good developers who keep up with the software updates right away. I like those guys!
About Carrier IQ. I don't have it anymore!!! Whooooo! I downloaded the Carrier IQ detector (in the market) from lookout. I ran it and it said that my devices "DOES NOT have carrier IQ" I'm happy about that. Less crap to crowd the internal storage.
The phone seems to be running faster as much of the updates were lighting fast, even the manual ones. No noticeable change in battery consumption. No lag.
Everything good so far. If anything changes later I'll post again.
