yeah i am with verizon. i have watched one of the videos i got from a link here about rooting and not losing your data about 20 times. i downloaded all the files it said to and have tried alot of the past few days but i still can not get oin to recognize my phone. and half the time i try to load in download mode the screen only loads half way and the phone shuts off. i may just stop for now and wait until one of my buddies can help me. from everything i watched or read it shouldnt be this difficult to do it.
