    I rooted because I wanted the free WiFi tethering, be able to flash custom roms and delete some of the pre installed apps.

    Rooting = Jailbreaking

    Newbie = don't root.

    I'm not saying you shouldn't look into it, but... MEASURE TWICE, CUT ONCE!!

    the only reason im even considering it is because i had jailbroken my iphone. but it seems a bit complicated and im not sure what the pluses would be for such an android newbie like me. thanks for the advice so far, anything you have to offer helps
