I have the sprint Hero. Rooted with 2.1 rooted blah blah blah... My wife needs a new phone. I would have gotten her a Hero as well, but she does not like the virtual keyboard, so that leaves me with the Moment as an option. Our plan is to get rid of the house cable modem and use the phones tethering as a $60/month savings, however she is not a technocrat, so I have a few questions before moving on with the plan. How stable is the Moment once rooted? Are their stock, or close to stock roms that offer tethering? With the Hero, there were a lot of battery issues that I was able to clear up. Are there any excessive battery draining issues with the Moment or anything you would like to share about the phone you do not like? As a phone in general, how is the voice quality, and is there visual voice mail? How difficult is the rooting process vs the Hero? For the hero, it was a few linux commands 20 minutes turned into 2 hours... and countless rom swapping till I found one that met my needs. Is wifi limited to 1x or does g3 work in tether mode? Can you multitask? Can you be on the phone talking and connect to data? Are there any limitations to the function of the phone once rooted, ex camera doesn't work? Any issues with overclocking?
