Did you test it? I believe it goes much deeper than this? See my original post here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1358896
I had submitted a support ticket with AT&T regarding Carrier IQ. Here's their response:
Dear ???? ???,
Thank you for contacting AT&T regarding removing Carrie IQ settings. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. My name is ?? ?? and I will be happy to assist you with your inquiry.
Mr. ???, I have reviewed the device specifications for the HTC Vivid and the Carrie IQ is part of the operating system of your device. If you attempt to remove this from your device per HTC technical support, this will void your warranty with AT&T and well as HTC. Please feel free to contact HTC directly if further information is needed.

Then, I had called HTC (866-449-8358 ), and HTC had forwarded me back to AT&T (23 November 2011). AT&T had promised to get back to me, but no reply since.
