    What's your level of technical knowledge regarding computers and cell phones? It's really not that difficult to root and flash a Droid. If you take your time, read all the steps, and do it right, there's no reason that someone that's confident with technology couldn't do it in an afternoon.

    Welcome! Good to have you with us. There are a lot of folks here that are very capable of providing support/guidance. I suggest that you go here http://www.droidforums.net/forum/ne...-assistance/116993-new-android-check-out.html and read the links on rooting. Then, read through the hacking section. Make notes and if you have specific questions post them. Finally, if you do decide to move forward the community will be here to assist you.

    By data I mean data network, don't mind of it's EDGE network
    And I've been to scared to try it on my own
    So I've been asking people I know and posted an ad to pay someone to do it for me.

    Only response I got was to just root and flash it partially
    The other replies were just unreliable

    So I decided to join this site and see where it takes me:blackberry:

    Data will connect via your phone when you create and activate your Google account. That should have been done when you left the store. Living in or near NYC you should have 3G or 4G.

    Receiving data (email, texting, surfing the web) does not require being rooted.

    Do you have a Google account activated on your phone? If so, do you have it set to auto sync so that your Gmail will be pushed to your phone?

    Using the stock SMS app or a free app such as Handcent or Chomp will allow you to text and exchange multi media. Again, a rooted phone is not required .

    Hope this is helpful.

    Ok I think we're confused.
    I was talking about Internet working on another provider, rather then verizon
    I wanted metro pcs, but i can't seem to get data and mms working.

    But Ive been searching through the forums and discovered page plus, it doesn't offer unlimited Internet, but it's better than nothing.

    But if you can find a way I can get metro to allow me to use unlimited Internet that would be great.:blackberry:
