I just purchased an Incredible. I really love it a lot, but I have a few questions if someone could clear them up for me. 1. There are a bunch of pre-loaded apps on my phone (Facebook, twitter, stocks, my verizon) and they are always running in the background according to my task killer app. I want to get rid of them, and I have read that you cannot unless you "root" your phone. What exactly does rooting do? I know that it can permanently mess up your phone, so, is it worth it? Do you think that htc will update android to enable you to delete these pre-loaded apps? 2. Is there a way to get more widgets for your phone? 3. I have updated to 2.2 before I even really knew what it was. People seem to be having trouble with it, but my phone seems to be working fine. Should I restore the factory settings just in case? I don't really have that much to back up. Thanks for your time. Any help would be appreciated.
