    so i've had my moto droid for 2 weeks and rooted it early this morning. i was running 2.1 so i flashed it to 2.0.1 using the instructions here:

    How to Root Your Motorola Droid Running 2.1

    i then completed the rooting process following the instructions on rootyourdroid.info. i believe i was successful as i now have the superuser icon w/my apps.

    so here's my problem: when i went to open my dolphin browser i got a notification that said "You lost area coverage or network connection because..." (i know that there was a thread on this and the verdict seemed to be an issue with service, however, i do have service as i can receive calls and txts.) gmail/maps/etc. won't connect either. any ideas?

    also a big thanx to everyone here for all the info you've posted that's gotten me this far!

    On your phone:

    Menu -> Settings -> Wireless and networks -> Mobile networks -> "Data roaming" needs to be checked.

    That's just shooting from the hip.

    good luck
