I think the taking of personal information can be rationalized any number of ways, but regardless of the rationale, it is the user's information, and user should be the one deciding whether it can be sent elsewhere. In my mind, having to do microsurgery or amputation of functionality on the OS and its apps to (possibly) evade that kind of data harvesting -- it doesn't address the underlying issue, that your data has been taken without prior notice or permission.

Besides, I got the phone for is ostensible functionality. I feel entitled to what I paid for, without the stealth taking of my information.
