    I just got my Droid Phone and already I hate bing along with a bunch of other crap that verizon put on here to kill my battery with. So I am wanting to root the phone so as to have my way with the thing lol. I'm aware this voids the Warranty etc etc. So can anyone point me in the right Direction as to getting started?

    Have you been to your phone section on the site? If not check it out. Its at the bottom of the page with all phones listed.

    Thought you had a Motorola Droid when you said you had a Droid lol.

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    Thw bloatware doesn't necessarily drain your battery. More often than not it takes up space on the system partition that you can't use otherwise.

    You can find additional information on rooting your phone in the Samsung Fascinate "All things root" forum...
