    After reading some of the uber high tech questions and answers, I feel a little silly asking this, but how do I search/find files saved to my SD card? Thanks...

    Welcome to the forum! In ur main menu, there should be a bunch of Widgets, is there one named Files or Folder? Do u have an app like Astro File Manager?

    Astro file manager has a search setting, if you're rooted, root explorer is awesome.

    That brings up another noob question. Could you give a quick explanation of rooting and what it does for a phone? Or a thread link? I know this is way basic- verging on the ridiculous...
