    Hi, I'm switching from vz to sprint to save some money and decided to get the Moment as it is free right now on Amazon. When it arrives later today will it have 2.1 already installed or will I have to do that myself? Anything else I should know before powering it up? Thanks.

    It really depends on when the phone was manufactured. Its only been what a month and a half since 2.1 on the moment was released. Its entirely possible that the phone has been sitting on a shelf for 3 or 4 months. You'll just have to wait and see.

    I would think it would have 2.1 on it. My wife had her's replaced once by Sprint and it had 2.1 on it already.

    Yes it did come with 2.1 on it. So far I am liking this phone a lot it is so much faster than the Eris I had on Verizon you wouldn't believe the difference side by side.

    Sweet glad to hear that!! If you think its fast now you would be amazed if you rooted it and put on a custom ROM!!! Im running Radioactive FroYo 1.8.5 and the speed and smoothness is incredible. Plus add in Launcher Pro beta and you have a deadly combination!!!

    I'm considering rooting it but haven't done anything like it before. A bit nervous something will go wrong or I won't like it and be stuck.

    easy to do, I am running the interceptor rom and it is crazy awesome, usually when you install a custom rom it roots the phone automatically, keep reading and form your own opinion, there are lots of threads on how to do things and lots of people to help. good luck

    There is a video on here that shows hot to root your phone. It's a great video and shows how easy it is to do.
