I got a smart phne for a wireless hot spot and it works fine.

When I went through all the settings I found the default is letting google have aspects of your information. I had to go through it all and deny google access.

Periodically I get a pop up asking to enable a service.

I did a search on test equipment, and lo and behold I startd seeing test equipment ads when I go to CNN.

I sted to sign up for gmail and gave it up after being pestered to go through a list of options.

Google is hardwired into the Android OS on my phone.

It is a conspiracy theory come true.
