    My wife has the Droid Incredible, whe went to Verizon with a problem and they said to do *228 I think every month. This updates your phone and usually fixes minor problems. Does this really work? Also I have the Motorola Droid and it is rooted. Should I do the *228 or will this not work with a rooted phone?

    Thanks

    It updates your radio connection with the tower. Can improve signal strength and data speed. I dunno about every month but i do it maybe once every six months.

    And the fact that its rooted doesnt matter

    It updates your preferred roaming list. It's necessary to do it about once a month because Verizon adds to the list all the time.

    Does it make a difference in the way your phone performs? It can, yes but it won't for many. Just do it anyway as part of your Droids maintenance program.

    Is it best to do both options or can you do only the first one?
