    Hi! New to the Forum, new to Droids, new to smartphones. Ordered a HTC Droid Incredible 2 today. 'should show up at my front door sometime tomorrow.

    I'm an old fart, retired, and the only cell I've ever had is my Moto Razr V3M. It will go into a drawer tomorrow!

    I'm anxious to learn about rooting, hacks, and "improvements" to my phone.

    well before you hack your phone, get to know your phone and it's capabilities, you may not want to hack it. and if you decide to hack, look over the information VERY carefully, it's very fun, but you don't want to mess up your phone. good luck!
