    I just got my first Android phone the other day and I love it! (Samsung Intercept $25 a month) But when you install apps it clearly states beforehand what parts of your phone will be accessed and what personal info will be transmitted so I don't know what people are complaining about.

    What I am still trying to figger out is how to turn off apps when I'm not using them. Easy to do in a PC but not so intuitive in a Droid.
