1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Hello Forum!

    I just registered and I am reading through the vast wealth of information contained here. I am soooo interested in rooting my phone mainly to get rid of Verizon's bloatware and I'm sure a bunch of other beneficial things (like being able to do a screen shot at the very least) I am just so lost. I have no idea where to begin. This is how I found this wonderful forum and hopefully I will locate information on how to accomplish this soon. And guidance is always appreciated. Also. Looking to get more than 6 hours out of this thunderbolt. Is this about average? I feel like I am on a corded phone- always have to plug in. Can't make it through a workday and I work outdoors so I'm frustrated. I come from having a long life but boring bb prior to this wonderful device I'm holding here in front of me. Again. All suggestions appreciated. Thanks!
