    Should be fine, but I would consider Handcent SMS if I were you. It does everything SMS Popup does, and much much more...

    I believe the apps need to disclose all the services they link to.. or the MArket does it automatically based on what libraries are included. I have never found an app to be malicious and or forward any information.

    +1 for Handcent recommendation.. it is by far the best most useful app I have..
