Pull request:  (assuming I'm not crazy!)
> Device plugin requires no permissions, so remove from documentaion 
> -------------------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: CB-4811
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Docs, Plugin Device
>    Affects Versions: 3.0.0
>         Environment: Windows 7
>            Reporter: Mike Billau
>            Assignee: Michael Brooks
>            Priority: Minor
> The docs for the cordova-plugin-device plugin (
say that the plugin will add 
> <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE" />
> to AndroidManifest.xml
> However, it seems like this is not actually the case, because 1) there is nothing in
the plugin.xml file that would do this (missing <config-file target="AndroidManifest.xml"
parent="/*">[...]) element, and 2) it doesn't seem like the device functionality needs
this permission at all. 
> Unless there are some strange dependencies that I'm not seeing between other plugins
that require the device plugin to have this permission (that wouldn't make sense...?), I think
the docs should be edited to reflect this to avoid causing confusion (it confused me at least!)
