    If an app in the marketplace shows access to only "network communication", is that the only access it should have when installed?

    The reason I ask is, I installed Dope Wars and in the marketplace it shows the only permission as Network communication (full internet access).

    After I installed it and went into manage applications and selected application info, Dope Wars has access to 3 permissions instead of the 1 as stated in the marketplace.

    It has access to:
    storage(modify delete SD card contents)
    Network Communication (full internet access)
    Phone calls(read phone state and identity).

    Am I getting worried over nothing or does that seem weird to anyone else? :thinking:
