    did you flash any custom ROM's? rooting by itself changes nothing in the phone except the ability to access all portions of the phone.

    that's all i wanted was to get some of that sprint junk off. i like how my phone came from sprint just not all that crap like tv and stuff. all i did was follow the instructions word for word and then used kitchen to take off the sprint stuff.

    Silly I know, but did you re-boot after removing that stuff? Most of the time a simple re-boot smooths out whatever wrinkles you have added to the system.

    yes it's been rebooted many times. the major problem i'm having is that i can't rec calls. it comes up as an andriod error and makes me force close it. then i have to reboot the phone cause it knocks out the network.

    It sounds like maybe you removed something that shouldn't have been. Obviously I don't know for sure, but that would be my guess. You did make a Nandroid before you started messing with stuff, right? Just restore that, and your problems will be fixed. Then you can try removing that stuff again. I would suggest removing it through ADB instead of the kitchen.

    It's the debug shell that lets you alter your phone. If you rooted without the Kitchen you used adb. If you rooted with the kitchen, then you did not. If you don't know what is, I would suggest reading up on it over at the xda forums before trying to use it.
