    I am new to Android phones, and recently got the Stratosphere. I am quite surprised that when I install an App, it demands access to the world. Even the Flashlight wants to know what phone number I am calling, and what my location is.

    Should I be concerned? Is this normal behavior for Droids? Are there choices?

    Thanks,
    JimR

    Once we get CM7 ported over (if ever), you'll be able to deny individual privileges after an app is installed. Pretty nice feature.
