    Okay.. With all this open source stuff (which is awesome 15+ year linux user here!!) I was obviously a little careful about what I install on my phone...

    I went to download "Wallpapers Pro" today, and I noticed it wants access to the following:

    Storage - fine... gotta put stuff in there if I download it
    Network communications - k, gotta get out to the net to download the wallpapers
    Phone calls - ...? Why? Why would a wallpaper downloading program need access to "read phone state and identity?"

    So I started going through and saw others that did that "iMusic" is one of them as well.. Is this for CDMA purposes (no data + calls, etc...)?

    Just curious what others think.

    Thanks,

    -Corey

    I don't pay attention to any of that, maybe I should though?
