I'm a LOOONG-term BBerry user who just switched over to Droids within the last 2 months. Hubby got the X, but it's way too big for my little hands to comfortably type and I'm stuck on my physical keyboard, so I got the Droid 2 - hated it - so I got the Samsung Fascinate - it's ok, but I HATE the touch keyboard and seriously miss the physical keyboard from my BB, but I like the Droid OS and apps, so I'm anxiously waiting for my PRO to be delivered to my door any minute!! (Yes, literally.... I'm sitting at home with my ear peeled for the FedEx man right now!! *LOL*) Anyway...... I keep reading about rooting phones and wondered what the heck that's all about? Why do you root your phone? What purpose does that serve? I'm anxious to learn learn learn. Thanks!
