oops just realised I posted this in the wrong place. I tried to delete but don't see how. Sorry. Hi, I'm a noob with smartphones and just bought a Star V1277 from hongkongeek. The phone is great except when I looked at the clock app it had loads of permissions that I don't think it needs: This app can access the following on your phone: - Your personal information (read contact data, read user defined dictionary, write contact data) - Services that cost you money (directly call phone numbers) - Your location (coarse (network based), location, fine (GPS) location - Network communication (control near field communication, Bluetooth connections, full internet acess) - Your accounts (use the authentication credentials of an account) - Storage (modify/delete SD card contents) - Phone Calls (read phone state and identity) - Hardware controls (change your audio settings) - System tools (bluetooth administration, change wi-fi state, change wimax state, change your ui settings, disable keylock, display system-level alerts, modify global system settings, mount and unmount filesystems, prevent phone from sleeping, retrieve rnning applications, write sync settings. Is this spyware? If so, what can I do about it? I can't uninstall this widget and it says I can 'stop' it but I would rather remove it from the device altogether. Is there a way to do this? Thanks.
