I used to use Droidwall, but I now use LBE Privacy Guard instead. LBE
Privacy Guard provides a per application network firewall, but it also
lets you block loads of other stuff on a per app basis too, like access
to location, the call history, contacts, IMEI and so on. When an app
tries to access one of these things, it pops up a confirmation dialogue
where you can specify allow/block and whether or not to remember that
choice. It is also free, but it also requires a rooted phone.

Although the above sounds a bit like an advert, I have no affiliation
with the author of the application other than as a very happy user.
