My carrier is Carolina West Wireless. I was afraid to try and root my phone because I couldn't find any info on rooting a Carolina West phone (CDMA). My buddy rooted his Sprint Hero and talked me into trying it on mine. We followed the directions at theunlockr.com and installed the Cyanogen ROM. It was a success and I couldn't be happier. Just wanted to post this in case there is someone else out there with my carrier that doesn't know if they can safely root their phone. My phone says "Sprint" on the lock screen now, but other than that it works great. Much faster. My carrier just recently released a 2.1 update for this phone, but to find out about it I had to call them. It was ok, but not as good as the 2.2 Cyanogen ROM.
