I currently use the dinosaur model Hue from Samsung. I"m a relative caveman when it comes to computers and phones, I don't text, chat, myspace, facebook, etc... I live out in the boondocks, outside the reach of the cable company. I currently tether to the internet via the Hue and it's terrible. I read the droid can be used to tether at much faster rates, so I am looking to upgrade my phone to a tether capable droid. Since I don't text, nor do I plan to use my phone as a mini-computer, I wanted to ask about the best phone to suit my needs and simple explanations as to the better options and what they do for me, like "rooting?" I apologize for my complete ignorance on the subject at hand, but the Verizon site is cumbersome, and when I go into the local Verizon store, they're heavy handed on the sell which I do not like. Thanks.
