    Dont forget to remove the annoying verizon brand on bottom. Makes phone that much sexier.

    Talking about the verizon logo on bottom right side of chrome. U take a penny and use the edge to rub off logo. Comes right off without leaving scratches. Sounds crazy but it works

    I'm with you all the way, Deduct. I purchased my Bionic just a couple of days after it came out in September. Except for a couple of glitches it works great! I, too, have thought of rooting my phone, but I know of far too many people who have done so that have suffered major problems afterwards and could not get back to their original configuration. Unless you really have a compelling reason to root your phone it is best to leave it stock. The only change I have made to my phone is replacing the original launcher with Go Launcher. My phone is now almost perfect...and I am leaving it that way.

    I did end up rooting my bionic. I havnt installed a ROM yet but it is rooted and de bloated. It was real easy to do. Read about it before you do it if you decide to.

    If u like trying other launchers you might try spb shell 3d. I have tried just about all of them and this one is by far my favorite. It is expensive at $15, but it has some awesome features that make it well worth the price. Remember you can be refunded within 15 minutes if u don' t like. After playing with it for just a few minutes i was hooked.
