I love the phone and Muve Music! I dont much care for the Huawei Music program because it doesnt import music from Muve so it seems kinda useless to have 2 music programs.
I see a lot of talk about "rooting" the phone and had a few questions. I had a friend "jailbreak" my iPod touch so I'm assuming it's similar to that? Why would you root a phone, What's the benefits? Pro's, Con's? Can it be undone? How hard is it to do? I'm fairly comfortable with the whole smart phone idea, there's not much I feel I don't know about them. After reading some threads I question myself! Anyways..any questions you all could answer would be great. Thanks!
Hi, welcome to the forums! Sorry for the delayed response. This thread has a lot of good info regarding rooting:
What is root or being rooted mean?
