Wow - I am new to smartphones and my adventure begins with a Christmas Samsung Admire $99.00. This Forum is really helpful, it's neat to see pooling of talent and info. I am taking the "self-study course" to try and get up to speed (pun intended) as a personal & intellectual challenge - a lot to learn, but fascinating. In a week I've spent probably 50 hours (most of my non-work time) learning, with more to come. I fully expect 100 hours before I'm done with root, custom rom, bloatware removal, etc. but very interesting experience. Many,many thanks to all of the dedicated professionals, tech wizards, and trailblazers for all of your hard work - it was information content that drew me to this forum.
