The T-Mobile MyTouch and MyTouch Q (actually made by Huawei) are receiving an OTA update today -- to software version C85B839SP03. Although the phones will stay on Android 2.3.6 for now, there are a few good things in this one. First and foremost, the update allows users to opt out of the Carrier IQ tracking software that is preloaded on the devices. There's a lot of FUD out there about Carrier IQ, but regardless it's good to see that a carrier is letting people have the option to toggle that data collection off. Also in this update is a camera fix, allowing the phones cameras to now realize a full 5MP resolution for photos. Of course as we'd expect, there are a few other random bug fixes involved in the update as well.

You can find more information about the update in the T-Mobile Support articles at the source links below.

WTF, why is carrier IQ even being put onto these devices still and why did there need to be an update to opt out?
