I think I am finally starting to be brave enough to root my Monte Carlo. I do like the phone. When I use task manager to stop most of the applications it starts up with it is especially good. It is light, and it was very inexpensive, especially since I had a lot of money in my Orange phone fund. I doubt I would have an Android without that. I have been looking here and elsewhere, but I haven't found anything definitive about rooting this particular phone. Can someone please help me? I am quite nervous about it, because if I fail I will be without a phone for quite a while. I want to do it because I am tired of having gmail and Orange mail. Google maps and Orange maps... etc, etc. I am concerned about losing Orange's HD voice and signal boost, though. Is there a workaround for this that anyone knows of? Apologies if this has been covered. I have looked but have not found anything. And thanks in advance.
