    So far I love the phone but like many am not real thrilled with the batt life.
    Been researching how to extend it.
    I have been seeing "rooting" what does it mean/do for my phone.

    Welcome to the AndroidForums, Tim.

    You can save a little battery in a couple of general ways (turn down screen brightness, reduce syncing interval, etc.).

    Rooting is gaining access to special privileges and functions on your phone that the manufacturer and carrier don't normally allow you to have. This includes running special programs and others versions of Android that aren't sanctioned by the carriers.

    Here's a thread with lots of other folk's description of root: http://androidforums.com/faqs/443432-what-root-being-rooted-mean.html

    Anyway, check out your phone's home forum and its companion rooting sub-forum for more information:

    Inspire 4G - All Things Root - Android Forums

    Cheers and I hope you have a Happy New Year! :)
