    Well don't you 'agree' to those terms by installing it and letting them use your wifi/3G?

    Is there any app like OSXs 'Little Snitch'? Something that can monitor all the calls home and block them?

    I know that some apps do background things I wish they wouldn't, but being rooted at least I don't have to see ads. The fact is though, it is a google product so they are going to use that forum to advertise for free. One thing that I always hated though was seeing AT&T ads on my Droid. You'd think VZW would have had some kind of a deal to block those from their customers somehow.
