    What does it mean to " root" my phone, and how do I know if I should?

    I means to gain root access to your phones file system. Its like signing in as administrator on a windows computer. Carriers discourage it because it lets you edit system files and gives access to such apps that allow you to wireless tether without paying the extra charge. Usually voids warrenty but you can generally get an sbf file and use rsdlite to flash your phone back to out of the box state. This does depend on your phone however. It also allows you to flash new roms which are modified versions of the operating system running on your phone. Depending on whether your bootloader is locked you can get unreleased update by flashing these roms. If the bootloader is locked youd have to wait for an official update from your carrier.

    Would this allow me to stop my phone from changing time zone? I live about a mile from the az/ ca border and my phone is always wrong

    In indiana we have a split time zone. Time is always bouncing back and forth. I FEEL YOUR PAIN!

    You can set your phone to not adjust the time automatically in settings.

    Settings/ date and time. Then just uncheck it.

    My phone doesn't blow me to do that. I see the text and check box, but it is dim and not accessible.

    Unfortunately, verizon (i'm pretty sure it's them) has the date/time options grey out (meaning you cannot change them) [I'm pretty sure it's verizon, because on my old ATT HTC Aria, I could mess with it, and now on my Xperia Play and my wife's commando it's unchangeable]

    *warning* haven't tried this on commando, but have tried it on Xperia play with no errors *warning*
    The way to get around this (that i've found) is to root your phone (yes, it's necessary) then install a program called "ClockSync" (Free, Market Link: https://market.android.com/details?...1bGwsMSwxLDEsInJ1Lm9yZy5hbWlwLkNsb2NrU3luYyJd ) once you have this installed, run it, press menu -> settings -> (scroll down) and check Override system settings, set your UTC offset (e.g. central time is UTC -06:00) then you need to click TimeZone fixer, and after the reboot, the time zone should be fixed! (and you can manually control it)

    The only problem I has was a week before daylight saving time for about an hour, my phone went crazy. (I live in the middle of central time zone, so I don't have any problems...)

    But, the problem is on both my phone (xperia play) and my wifes phone (commando) the date/time options are greyed out and it set to be network provider as the only option for time.
