    Do a search on rooting the fascinate. Then start reading reading and reading some more. Afte that you should have some ideas as to what you can do. If you don't want to hack your phone then do a search for launcher pro or adw. Either of these 2 launchers will let you customize how your phone looks and acts. You can also find icon packs to download that will change how your phone looks

    Rooting essentially gives you complete control over your phone. Kind of like admin rights on your pc. Like a said before do a search on rooting and you will be able to find the answer to any questions you may have.

    the easiest way to describe it for me is like being an admin on a windows computer. You can do wherever you want. Rooting allows you to install themes, overclock, change the"resolution" (density) of your screen, and so much more some of which I can't name here. You certainly lose nothing when rooting, but so many doors are opened.

    It's certainly not for everyone, but the brave are rewarded with several new abilities.

    Im not sure with the Fascinate how easy it is to mess up. I know that the D1's are almost impossible to brick. One thing that you do need to know before rooting is that you will void your warranty. If youre rooted and something goes wrong come here with your problems do NOT take it in to VZW. The good thing is tho that if you root and dont like it you can always return back to the stock form of your phone

    As far as I know no it doesn't. Ive been rooted since December of last year and have had no problems. The hacking community is really a pretty good community. And a lot of the things that you can do to your phone can be done from your phone

    Yeah you should be able to. Theres an app floating around called Z4root that will let you root your phone from your phone. It can be found over at xda developers.
