    I am not having this issue? Did you try a reinstall?

    I have the same problem and always say no which results in an error and crashes the app. Given Google's track record of tracking people and web activities I can only assume they are peering into your phone logs, emails, addresses and the like.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I also get an error when I decline the connection. It does not seem to actually crash the appliction, it just claims to.

    I can't think of a logical reason an email app needs access to my phonebook.

    Have you guys tried just downloading the Gmail app alone and not the suite of apps (gmail,maps...etc) I found the install for gmail a bit different when I tried it. Just a thought?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I'm only running the stand-alone app and never even downloaded the suite.
