Hi everyone! I want to buy LG Revolution soon but I heard that Verizon put their Remote Diagnostics tool there by default and I will not be able to get rid of it. Is there something I must know about it?

Hi Gabriel!

Of course there is something that you must know about it before making a decision to purchase it! The more you know the better you prepared :) So, as for those diagnostic tools...

Not only Verizon involved in this but HTC too. Soon all HTC smartphones will be coming with pre-installed LogMeIn Remote and Verizon will make its LG Revolution and Samsung Droid Charge with pre-installed Verizon Remote Diagnostics tool from AetherPal. According to official statements, both HTC and Verizon are trying to reassure customers that there will be no tricks with their remote customer tech support tools.

Do you remember the Carrier IQ case? Here and now we have almost the same situation, except now we know what is the official purpose of the software in our smartphones. Still as it was with Carrier IQ software, HTC LogMeIn Remote and Verizon AetherPal Diagnostics tool are not uninstallable. And those companies are trying to lie to us and say that it is not true that the only thing they really want is to spy on us day and night.

So if you want to be sure that your new smartphone won't spy on you you can either root your mobile device or prevent HTC LogMeIn Remote and Verizon AetherPal Diagnostics tool from spying on you.
