About rooting.

There are forums out there that do nothing but. This CNET forum is great but no rooter's appear to be here.

I find that with each new version, it take a bite out of battery time unless I do things like turn down the effects or something else. At least the bloatware items can be ignored by removing them from my home screens. I ignore them.

Yeah i know what you mean, but another thing is when i rooted my phone i removed all bloat ware and i had like 20 something apps on my phone then when the update came it put all bloatware back on the phone plus the apps so i had NO room for anything not even a text message, and i need some of the apps on there, thats why i was wondering if any body found out how to root it so i can remove bloatware again Grin

I have nothing against rooting but if folk root they often ask or even DEMAND support for the rooted phone. You can imagine what you want about this area but I find the support to be in the forum such as XDA where the root came from.

And you replied very much later and what you posted next appears to be a call for help is an old post that isn't yours.

I'd start your own post with your own topic. I thought I'd clarify the rooting discussion.

If the phone is that bad, why keep it? Doesn't your carrier want your business?
