    rooting doesnt give you free apps it gives you control to change the way the phone runs

    Yeah, you got confused as to what rooting actually is. You'll have to look elsewhere to find your pirated .apk files.

    The smart idea is to pay for your apps. I mean, you still get a trial period in the market.

    Rooting isn't the same as jailbreaking an iPhone/iTouch. It gives you the option via apps like Titanium to remove VZW "bloatware" like VZ Navigator, City ID, 3G Mobile Hotspot, etc. It also allows you via ROMs like Cyanogen and MIUI to completely change the UI and run apps like the free hotspot and overclock the CPU (you need to install a custom kernel like Hydra or HeyitsLou--be cautious when doing so, however!). Most ROMs come with a lot of these enhancements baked in, so all you need to do is wipe your phone and flash via .zip downloads to your SD card or via ROM Manager.
