[Q] "Test device" forcing Tell HTC on
I have an HTC One m7. It is unlocked and S-Off but with the stock ROM reflashed. When I go through the setup routine, it shows the screen I attached below. Basically, it says it's a "test device" and that it automatically shares my personal info with HTC. Is this because of S-Off? Or is it because the phone is somehow different? I got it from a friend who used to work at Telus (Canadian carrier) and it was a demo device, but I never saw it stock. He had already flashed it with the Google Play edition ROM, which I didn't like, so I switched it around a couple times.
So, is S-Off causing this message? And is it actually sending my data to HTC? If so, what can I do to stop it?
