    I'm new to the Android based phones but it looks like I will be getting a EVO and possibly a Hero or Moment. My main question is if I should do anything to the phone (like rooting it) before I activate it?
    Like is there something that works better or makes it better if done before it's activated?

    Or should I just activate it right away and then mess with it?

    About the only reason I would be interested in rooting it is to have tethering (Wireless if possible).

    Thank you and I look forward to being a member here.

    There is one thing you should absolutely not do before you activate the Evo:






    ...drop it. :)

    If this is your first Android device I highly suggest you leave it in stock form and get used to it. Rooting it right away will probably not be beneficial to your cause. Just enjoy it for a week or so and read up more on all of the great things the devs are coming out with regarding rooting and ROMs.
