    hello all, new to android.....3 days...

    have been to the market and most apps need access to phone calls, why? will they use my minutes?

    so far nervous to download anything, and advice would be appreciated :)

    Bump, I'm curious about this too, as well as the other permissions apps ask for.

    Most of them are just checking to see if you are on the phone.

    Or if you get a phone call while using an app, it might need to pause, save data, etc.

    There's a thread here in the apps forum that discusses all the permissions apps ask for and what they mean.

    I asked the author or WordWise about this. He says that as the free version of the app is ad supported, some of those ads might, if clicked, dial a number. might be for a chatline at
