    My biggest question is weither or not to root my HTC Tbolt or find a new phone. The reason is my tbolt has been acting up and just being really slow and laggy. I've never rooted before but don't want to spend money for a new phone (upgrade isn't for a year).

    Any feed back would be appreciated

    Usually... Uninstall applications that you are not using can make the device runs better. If that doesn't work for you, then you might have to reset the device to its factory default settings; thus, making the phone feels like when you first got it.

    Also, welcome aboard. And I will be moving your thread to your device's support forum - maybe someone else can assist you as well.

    Welcome to AF! Rooting is pretty easy just make sure you read everything and understand it before doing it. If you have questions, ask! We are all pretty friendly here in the TB threads and try to help as much as we can!

    Rooting can be pretty scary, I know I was terrified the first time I did it. But once you start doing it, it's easy to get the hang of with flashing roms amd radios.

    Watch the video in the "how to root" thread (or just youtube nat3mil root thunderbolt) and you'll see what exactly is involved with rooting the revolutionary method.

    Good luck! And remember, don't root if you don't feel comfortable doing it!
