All android phones come with google built in, since Google owns Android. If you want a smartphone sans Google, go with ios, Blackberry or windows phone.

Nokia Lumia, Blackberry or iPhone might be for you :)
100% Windows, RIM or Apple respectively and if they can help it, they won't have any Google in sight :P

Thanks. Its gotten to the point that every time Google updates, it wants more and more permissions to whats left of my privacy. Hang outs being the latest.

Not wanting to make you have a bad day Stephen, but as soon as you carry a smartphone, have e-mail, etc... you pretty much kiss your privacy goodbye! Such is life :(

I understand that to a certain point Topper. But i dont use Hangout, Ebooks or Picasa. Google just asked me for what amounts to a blank check access to my phone contents. So for example i dont use Picasa yet with blank check, Google can access via a different door.

I get your point entirely Stephen, and I can appreciate the efforts to keep your privacy as much as you can, no problem there. And I'll be the first to admit that sometimes, the permissions apps ask for are a bit much! I am not kidding myself though, no matter the amount of effort I may put into this, Bell will still send me publicity through the mail even though I've moved 3 times since I've left them for my home phone, haha! :)
