To have this included by default, unless you pay for premium membership, is plain wrong, and flies in the face of everything the FSF and open source were founded to achieve. Android is touted as being Open Source, and almost forcing this app upon users is not a nice thing to do, especially when there is no simple (read: non-geeky, for the average user) way to remove it.
If the software, as Harrid alleges, DOES send texts to a number without permission (unconfirmed), then this is as bad as they spying mechanisms which Microsoft use in XP, to send Microsoft lists of what music you are listening to, and what programs you have installed (yes, they do - I suggest you watch some Richard Stallman lectures - he is the founder of the FSF - "The Free Software Foundation", without whom Android likely wouldn't even exist).
If you value your freedom, you should reject software that has no way of being removed, and if you decide you want to use it, you should ask for someone with appropriate knowledge to look at the WaveSecure source code, and ensure it does not spy on the users by sending texts. This kind of practice is immoral, and should be stopped.
This post is not meant to start a flame war, but is intended to (hopefully) allow even free Modaco members to have the choice as to whether or not software is present in THEIR hardware.
