New to Android, Droid X, and Verizon and trying to learn the ropes here. I guess I am looking for some guidance. Just got DX about 5 days ago. The first thing I noticed that I do not like is all the apps that run in the back ground; example: Skype and gmail. (I cant understand why one would need to use skype on a cell phone) To uninstall the software I don't need, I would need to root, right? Is it possible to root a Droid X safely? I sure could use a little hand holding thru this process, as I've never done this to any phone before.
