To start with, don't get me wrong... I have no issues with Rooting or Roming a phone. I am a PC tech with over 20 years experience and a lot of mobile phone experience as well. I have been using smartphones since the Palm Heyday of the Kyocera 6035 and Treo 650. Windows mobile and Blackberry as well, and been with Android since the OG droid came out. I know there are some valid reasons for Rooting, but it has been something I never wanted to do. I have noted with this phone(I have one in the mail right now!), that almost no one runs it stock. In following the forums I think I have seen one person mention he had a stock phone. How many more are there, I am just curious? What are some of your reasons for running it stock or not??
