    So I installed Where today, and after installation it shows this, "this application will access the following on your device", followed by a list of things.

    where seems to access dang near everything.

    paid services (what the heck does that mean?)
    Contacts (please don't tell me it sends things out).


    Are any of these something one should worry about?

    I'm pretty sure by Contacts it means that it lets you send emails and whatnot with directions.

    Not sure about paid services.

    I have used WHERE on my Blackberry since I got the thing and it has always been a great app and never gave me any issues.

    WHERE will likely access most options because of what it does. It has to access GPS and use your location info. At least with this app the access is understandable. It gets to be sketchy when you download a game and some of those options are listed...when it would make no sense.
