    In my haste and excitement to try out my phone I downloaded loads of apps from Android Market and didn't really pay any attention to the warning screen that shows you which parts of your phone the app needs access to.

    Is there a way to check up on this after the app has been installed?

    What I would like to be able to do is go through each application and see what parts of the phone is needs access to and uninstall it if I feel that it shouldn't need access to various items.

    Yes. Go to settings-applications-click the app-then at the bottom, there is a show more option. It will tell you exactly what the phone has access too.

    Okay, cheers all. I'll work my way through all the apps i've installed and uninstall any that look a bit suspect.
