    Carrier IQ detects and records everything. All text messages are deemed insecure.

    I checked and I have it disabled it. So if carrier iq dosent get any info then it should be secure or I'm I wrong?

    This may be true on some Android platforms, but it is not true on iOS and it has never been true on iOS. iMessages are as secure as an SMS or a BBM. They are encrypted push notifications.

    Yea it should be secure unless Apple secretly records everything.
