    I didn't say don't use the phone and i want sarcastic with you. How is that not useful. Download firefox and use yahoo search. Instead of syncing your Contacts. To gmail Transfer your contacts using vcards and import them onto your device. Dont sync your pictures to google plus.

    Grow up. He didn't say don't use the phone.

    If you're using an Android phone, Google is almost certainly collecting and monetizing your personal data. If you're worried about it, switch platforms. Either that or root the phone and install a custom kernel. I'm sure Franco and the boys have a partial solution.

    All this drama, and so little real solutions.
    Just hints of solutions, that someone else may have...

    Nice work, gang.
    Top notch.

    Friggin hilarious, you point out their bs and they flip, personally insult you in faltering English, then ask you to leave.

    I'm curious if there is a real solution to this.

    Many people are (in my view) rightfully worried about GooGoo, and their nefarious privacy schemes.
    Not being able to opt out of it, as I do when I create an account, seems pretty shady, even for Google.


    Awaiting a real answer, if anyone has one.

    Well, if all you're going to do is call me names, like a petulant child, and give me half baked advice that skirts around the issue, I'm not sure what kind of response you expect. I really wish the internet was more open and honest. It's people like you that make interacting online such a chore. All I did was ask a simple question.

    and you tell me not to use my phone at all.

    I don't think you understand the way this forum works, little man.
    People don't come here to play simon says with the likes of you.

    I asked a simple question and you gave me lip, now you're hellbent on dragging this into a dramafest.
    Well, no, again no, and again No thank you!

    Getting back on point, after being interrupted.

    Does anyone know how to circumvent Google collecting data from my phone every waking hour?
    No trolling please, just serious answers. Thank you.

    There are answers. You either failed to see them or failed to follow them. Or you want someone to do the work for you. Your question was definitely answered.
