    I have a few questions... I am super new to android, but I have been playing with my moment non-stop since I got it last night (had it flown in next day air). I rooted and put a custom rom on my moment last night. Forgive me if these questions have been answered somewhere else on the forum.

    1. How do you undo the root for the moment (unroot)?

    2. How do you remove the custom rom and go back to stock 2.1?

    3. Will wifi tethering make sprint charge you? (I'm pretty sure they won't, but
    want to make sure)

    4. My phone has network errors a lot, and I have to reboot. Do I have a faulty handset or does this happen to you guys?

    5. How do you automatically start wifi when a remembered network is in range?

    6. In your opinion, did I make the right choice in buying this phone or is it outdated? Should I have stuck with my Blackberry curve 8330 and waited for the epic? (I know it won't get any official updates, but I realized that people are working on an unofficial version of 2.2)

    7. Has Sprint said whether or not they will charge the extra $10 a month on the epic?

    8. What is a good app that helps save battery?

    1. use sprint updater to flash sprint official 2.1 back on your phone.
    2. see above.
    3 not really, no... but it has been said not to do things while tethered you cant do with your phone (like hulu) but email and web surfing, iming are fine.
    4. welcome to the Moment.... data lockups are a bane of the model.
    5. dont think you can. there is a widget you can use to one touch turn on wifi but i dont think it will auto pick up
    6. it is end of life at this point. is still a good handset for what it does, but wont be holding much support for it and DEFF no more updates.
    7. yes. it is a 4G charge. all 4g handsets will be charged teh $10
    8. not an app but i have found MeatKernal to be pretty good for preserving battery

    Thanks for educated answers... I think this phone is perfect for me. (The price is what made me want it.)

    Hopefully you won't have issues like I've had with 2 Moments now, my wife's Moment has the same issues, and two of our family members with Moments have other issues that causes it to be useless.

    The moment is already outdated and Sprint wont be doing any upgrades to it. The blackberry is a nice phone but I dont like the mobile version of the internet. After seeing my buddys Evo, thats the best thing out there.

    Just throwing out "issues" without details is an issue in itself.

    I just installed this app called SetCpu 2 nights ago and my battery life is incredible. I heard it mentioned in one of these forums somewhere, it's available on market (paid app). But if you venture over to xda developers and become a member you can get it for free with option to donate. The latest version (2.0.2) didn't seem to work right so I put 2.0.1 on and it's great. So to give you an example, I pulled my phone off the charger at 930 yesterday morning and did not hook it up via usb to computer nor charge it last night. So almost 34 hours later still going. It's down to 5% right now. This is with fairly light use and I've been around wifi network most of the time so it probably won't be quite this good when I go to work and don't get a good signal inside my plant. Hopefully it'll be better than the 5 or 6 hours I was getting before. Thinking you need to be rooted for this program, can't remember off hand.

    Just to be clear I'm running a custom Rom also. I've been using Interceptor version 6 Rom for the past week. I think this Rom is really good and it seemed like my battery life got better just with this Rom, and my performance was definitely better.

    Hope this helps, laters.

    Update: Well I finally plugged it in when it got down to 3%(expecting a call, so didn't want it to shut all the way off). So to summarize I got 35 hours off of 1 charge using SetCpu. Hopefully this wasn't a fluke.

    Setcpu is an interesting concept, but I've tried just about every version released over the last 6m or so and everyone introduces some instability that eventually causes me to uninstall. Another power saving app you may want to try is juice defender. Totally different concept from Setcpu, but it does seem to be extending my battery life with far less issues. Free in the market
