    A friend of mine has a Vibrant, and he's got it rooted. I was helping him with ADB and such so he could try and theme the interface.

    a friend with the captivate has his rooted and has been throwing other custom roms on it all over the place. Sounds pretty easy. He's got it so that he can use any of the other carriers market places.

    if you use the stock app it costs an additional 20 or 30 dollars a month depending on what option you choose... 2 gigs a month or 5 gigs a month.


    wifi tethering on a rooted device is free.

    The galaxy s series of phone are very easliy rooted and able to have custom roms on them. They come unlocked out of the box (no locked bootloader) Pete rooted him moms and even made a rom which removes some of the bloat ware from it all in the first day his mom got the phone.
    Ive been looking into this phone and running a galxy s theme and love the look and specs so I may make the jump.Sounds like a good phoen to play with because of the ease of rooting,roms and what not. Hopefully it will have a good developer backing.
