I am rooted and have CM7 on. I have had CM since it came out for the Droid. I get daily texts from Best Buy, a text from VZW, and 2 emails from VZW.
I have been watching and waiting for VZW to come out with the next "big thing". Unfortunately, there is not much coming down the pipe. It as almost as if VZW phones have decided to say "screw dual-core" and wait for quad-core or iPhone 5.
