    Look in your apps folder. Do you have an icon there named Superuser? The icon looks something like this...

    The icon not the phone. If you have a superuser icon then you have rooted the phone.

    The only thing left is to see if it actually works. You could try using wireless tether to see if it works... etc.

    Good luck.

    that will no doubt give you root. your carrier would have to allow roaming. boost mobile and straight talk don't allow roaming.

    There is a separate thread about the google talk authentication problem. You might address your problem there... probably get better support. Read through the thread might give you ideas about something you haven't tried.

    Is there anyway to enable roaming on the straight talk precedent?

    NO there is no Roaming with Straight talk or boost. they use a SMALL Area of sprint towers and thats all we get...

    as far as google auth error, i have had it, i did a factory reset and as soon as the phone booted i logged into googletalk and left it that way NO MORE Error..

    You CAN roam on Boost. From their FAQ:


    Do I get charged for roaming?

    No, nationwide calling is included in all Boost Mobile plans and there are no extra roaming costs. You can also make calls from almost anywhere in the United States and pay the standard call rates. Click Here to view the coverage map.

    The question is how to get Android phones set up to allow roaming. I had a non-smartphone and it roamed without issue on a US Cellular tower. I just can't get my Galaxy S Prevail to do the same thing.

    Customer support said that when I was in an area with no Sprint signal, to remove/re-install the battery and then reboot. That did not work for me.

    That is the key quote right there, You need to see if your in a area covered by boost.
    Basically if you have sprint coverage you can make a call, sprint owns boost so the sprint towers are also boost towers.

    I have a Prevail and drive all over the state Im in and get better signal than most people I know. So I believe Boost does allow roaming. But Ive not left the state and tried to use it so Im not sure how far I can go with it.
