I'm currently a D2G user and I am fairly happy with the phone, especially now that it's rooted. I'm always reading up on the latest phones and whatnot and was briefly reading some info on the Charge. Well earlier today I was browsing on Craigslist to see what some people were selling their Charge's for and came across a guy who wants to trade his Charge for a D2G straight up. So I immediately called and talked with him for quite awhile and I am meeting up tomorrow to swap phones. I definitely am not losing anything since I have a backup D2G that I use to test new roms so in case something goes wrong or I dislike the phone I can always swap back to my global. Now for a few questions: Is there anything negative that I should be concerned about with the Charge? How is battery life compared to other android phones? And lastly since I am swapping him my rooted phone, do I need to unroot my phone so Verizon can activate it or do they not care if it's rooted? Thanks in advance!
