Just as a warning, if your Google+ account is suspended, then your google-associated Android phone will no longer display contacts, gmail or calendar.

Edited to change 'will' to 'can'. I've seen several first-hand accounts of people this has happened to after they got snagged for their names, but it's not a guaranteed consequence. Just a non-zero one.

This makes me glad I went for an iPhone -- and my calendar and gmail aren't associate with my Google+ account.

Isn't that something one has paid for? I wonder if they're getting into bad legal territory...

Interesting. Are there alternative services for Android phones? I thought you had to use Google stuff on them. (I have zero knowledge of smartphones, alas.)

That doesn't fit with what I've been hearing--unless something has recently changed drastically, the G+ suspension only affects things that use the "Google profile," like Buzz etc. There have been a couple unrelated instances of people's entire Google accounts being suspended for other reasons, and that has muddied the waters some, but it's a separate issue.

(And that's not the same thing as "bricking a phone." It'd be a huge nuisance, I grant you, but the phone would still turn on and make calls.)
