I haven't decided to do anything yet, as my phone's mostly working okay now that I reset it (grrr).
But while I was at Verizon having them do the reset (I was getting ready to leave for vacation the next day and didn't have the time to reset the phone, much less do it myself) I asked the guy if he knew anything about rooting the phone. He said it was illegal. Not that I really give a flip if it is, but is it? I don't think it is, or at least it shouldn't be because it's MY phone and I'm paying for it, so why should I have crap on there that I don't want? Personally, I think they tell customers that so they don't mess up their phone.
I think when my 2 years are up, I'll upgrade to a different phone, as I heard the Ally doesn't have much memory to begin with. I'm not even sure I'll stay with the Android. I dunno; I have another year to think on this, so we'll see.
