    So I saw somewhere that you can root a phone, i have an issue with my phone because it keeps changing from pac time to eastern time, the setting will not allow me to change it, i believe it is the model because i already replaced with another phone same model, and the new one is doing the same thing, also i have done a reset and have done a hard reset, also i do not live next to a time zone... so how can i root the phone because i heard that this might work? and what is rooting a phone?

    Rooting a phone is gaining administrative access to the operating system. It doesn't sound as if rooting will solve your problem. (It will. however, void your warranty.)

    I would contact your carrier about this before rooting, if this is your only issue.
