    Well there are benefits to rooting and disadvantages if you so feel to do so you lose your warranty but you can use custom ROMS and certain apps that exclusively for root users i hope this helps clear that up for you :D

    Now I would agree with justtom. But here's the thing, this is #2... I returned it monday and got another fresh out the box. This has the same problems. they have decreased slightly but my original post are the problems I am having out of #2. So I didn't get one bad phone, but 2!

    Yea that's what they say, I hope so for boost mobile's sake. I love this phone. But I gotta find a way to knock out the bugs before I decide to try to root it. On another note, flashlight won't work nether. Tried just about every app I could find. Any thoughts?

    No flashligts work yet,there is someone in here that is develoling a app just for the warp you will have to do a serch in here also there is a loop hole some one found to keep the flash lit during a picture shot so you can use it like a flashlight.I'm sorry I'm away from my desk top and laptop and serching thru here on this unit is a pain in the ass,I'm sure you will find it.

    edit 6/26/12

    Open up camera, turn on flash, take a picture but hit the home screen when the camera square on the screen goes green and the flash will stay on... hit power once to turn off...

    So did you get your issues worked out via tech support or return it for the charm.

    I went ahead end rooted it. seemed to work slightly better. I now have more control of my battery and ram. I am looking for a custom rom though. Something honeycomb based. I wana just honeycomb it period. Bump up from gingerbread 2.3 to 3.2 honeycomb. Any way for that to happen? If not, list a few custom roms closes to it?

    we don't have any ROMS based on anything newer than 2.3.5 yet, there are people working on cm7 and cm9 as well as a 2.3.6 port. Honeycomb is generally equivalant to 2.3.6 and was made for tablets specifically: Android version history - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    There are many good ROMs, I have one called n00b that is fabulous, but you can find others that are great too.

    From all my reading, the vast majority of Warps reboot, crash for no reason. If you have one that doesn't, your lucky. I was against rooting another phone, but I am pretty sure once a custom ICS comes out, I will be rooting. I hear more and more that rooting and a custom ROM solves the issue. ?

    And it is a constant issue in the forums all the time. You hiding under a rock ? If yours works...your one of the few.

    Do you really think this forum consists of the vast majority? Most people sought out this forum for advice because they were having problems or looking to root. Less then 25% of people who own the Warp even know this forum exists. I would NOT use this forum as a sample size to draw a conclusion of "vast majority". Just do a quick search and amazon users rate it a 4 star phone, 4 and a half on ebay, around 4 stars by users on cnet.com, 8 out of 10 on gsmarena. And thats just hundreds of people who took the time to rate the phone and most people don't leave reviews.

    I never had any problems with my phone. Well, no, scratch that. I did, but it was my own fault. Custom rom i tried to make didn't work >_> But no issues with freezing or anything on my end

    We'll agree to disagree. I believe from what I read, friends, reps at my local boost store all have the sane problems. I feel it is quite evident it has its problem. I know many agree with me. Point made. Topic closed for me. I just made a statement. Its just a phone, not my life. I would prefer it if it did not have problems, like the vast majority.

    I rooted my warp after the latest update and less than 24 hours later I could no longer make outgoing calls. I can access data, texts and RECEIVE calls but not make them. I reverted to stock and called boost and they were unable to help. Anybody got any ideas before I call this phone a paperweight?
