    Hey guys,
    ive been doin some research, and i want to get a android phone right away!

    I am wondering though if you guys can sum up everything for me in a nutshell!

    Whats the easiest android phone to get rooted and allow me to talk over the internet for free and never pay a cell phone bill again.

    Im looking to buy it prepaid, and then do something like how the G1 can do.

    Im looking to dial out over internet and recieve calls over wifi as well. what phones will be easiest to set this up and do this?? is this process called tethering??

    well to call on a networks line and never pay a bill? won't happen, ever.

    However if you get a phone that has gingerbread they have wifi calling standard on it, then theres a wifi texting app you can get as well so that would be one route for ya if you're always around wireless networks.

    Well here's the issue. For standard wifi calling on gingerbread you'd need a phone that either comes with it (which I think the nexus is the only one that has it stock) or a phone with custom roms built for it.

    Now the problem with gingerbread 2.3 is they apparently aren't going to push it out now due to 2.4 coming out so early and being better, which they are calling 2.4 gingerbread as well.

    Theres other free options you can use like Fring/vbuzzer but that requires other people to have that software, much like skype calling.

    If you are talking about VOIP, you essentially should be able to do this on anything 2.1 (might be 2.2) or later. Essentially everything on the market right now should have you covered. You shouldn't need to do anything special, at all to it.

    I think you need to expand your research some more. No offense but it seems that you don't quite grasp the technology involved here. You say that you never want to pay a cell phone bill again, but then say that you just want to use a 3g or wifi connection to pick up internet on phone. The only way to get 3g is to pay for it. At any rate here is a guide to help you.

    Edit: Just noticed this guide in the Applications forum.
