I have had my fascinate for about 3 weeks. I am new to smartphones and kinda a dork. Please point me to a thread that probably already answered these questions, sorry for needing this stuff in "english" What the hell is rooting? Is that what I need to get the installed apps off my phone or to hide them. ie. blockbuster I turn my sync off to save battery, but when I turn it on to check twitter/gmail, it never goes off. I unclick the sync button in the drop down and I even go in to the accounts & sync from settings and turn it off. The only way for it to go away is to turn my phone off. why? I just want gmail but I have the installed email too. I just want gmail. How do I get rid of their email? When I get home, I don't need my email to keep checking and it won't go off. When I have sync on it is so delayed. My mail is two hours behind. What gives with that. Thanks for your patience. I know your eyes are rolling because these are probably pretty basic questions. I appreciate any help.
