    Well after being on the iphone4 for about a year, I got tired of it and decided to switch to android. Picked up a used thunderbolt and loved it. Wanted to make sure that I would actually like android. Played with that for 2 months and decided to upgrade to a newer phone. Picked up a bionic and liked it, but with all the problems with it I couldn't take it anymore. Decided to call up verizon and see if they could switch me into a new phone. Well after 2 weeks, 5 bionic replacements, they are sending me out a GN :), can't wait to get my hands on this thing on Tues.. any tips out there before I set up the phone, I know I want to root it first. Not sure how hard its going to be but oh well right :)

    A good time to buy (for non-rooters especially) because of the 4.0.4 OTA update. It sure fixed the few minor issues I was having. :biggrin:

    I have not looked into it but I am pretty sure you can. I believe same method as well but I wouldn't mind someone else verifying that for me.
