Benefits of Rooting, Data Conserving, and Volume Issue
So, I just got my Droid Razr M and am beyond happy with it (even though I am upgrading from a worn out X2). This is only my second smartphone, but I feel like it is a really good one.
I have a couple of questions though. I apologize if the answers can be found elsewhere, but after searching for a few days I decided to just ask.
- What are some advantages, besides freezing/removing bloatware, to rooting this device? I have no experience with rooting, but it is something I have thought about and would probably like to do. Also, would rooting now affect the phone when the official JB update is released?
- Since I am switching over from my X2, I no longer have the convenience of unlimited data. Are there any good ways to conserve data, besides using WiFi more often? I feel like I'm likely to go over my 2gb/month limit if I don't start conserving. (I've had to ditch my lovely Spotify Premium subscription because of the data use )
- Finally, I have noticed that when I have my phone plugged into my Aux port in the car, it is significantly quieter than when I had my X2. I find this weird considering the fact that the actual speaker is much louder. Luckily, I can boost the dB's on my music with Winamp Pro, but has anyone else noticed this problem? And is there anything (besides a sketchy "VOLUME BOOSTA" app) that I can do to fix this?
Thanks in advance for any support, and I apologize for my unnecessarily lengthy questions
