This is only the 2nd or 3 time I have ever messaged a forum. RWW is my initials. I'm looking for a job right now and don't have a lot of time to spill my guts about my life. I have just recently completed the CompTIA A+ Hardware PC Technician Certificiation. I have actually worked in Engineering in the past for the US ARMY AS A CIVILIAN. I don't have a Facebook or Twitter account AND I AM NOT INTERESTED IN GETTING ONE. My reason for getting on this forum is because I will probably have to know a lot more about phones than I currently know. I just want to root my Verizon phone that I use on Straight Talk Wireless. My question is, do you have to buy a extra battery charger just to root a phone? Is this really necessary? There were way to many steps just to get onto this forum for my taste. That may be because I really need to be job hunting, but I need to get my tech stuff done also. Can anyone fill me in on the rooting process in the most simplified way?
