Android Permission

Hi guys,
I've published 3 free applications on your market and I have another one in development. 
I just wanna know why Android applications asks for permission to read personal data such as pin, personal informations and so on, even if the application don't require it.
In manifest file I have only 2 permission:
- android.permission.INTERNET
- android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE

That message discourage users, what I have to do to remove it ?

Re: Android Permission

You have your mobile phone number listed as your "My Mobile Provider" or carrier. Putting your phone number out on the internet on these public forums for the world to see, is not wise. To change that, at the top of this page click on My Settings > Personal Profile > Personal Information, and in the entry block for "Carrier" type the name of your mobile provider.

Someone else will respond to your main question.
