Wish it was that easy! Even wildly popular games like Angry Birds email home. Well known browsers like Dolphin, Boat Browser, etc. also send info home. Many apps want to sync to their clouds - which I do not do. Etc. etc. That is why I am using a firewall but am not knowledgeable enough about android to know of ways to bypass it.
I think everybody needs to be very careful with what they do on their phones, certainly nothing financial, but in the age of Facebook that advice is falling on deaf ears.
