    Okay, I'm have a some minor things that are not right and I'm wondering if a Factory Reset would help or be worth it...
    1. keep syncing phone book over 3g (even if on wifi) sometimes 3 or 4 time in a 5 min span and even if background sync is off

    2. random power downs

    3. no market update (is this something I need to do manually?)

    4. Sometimes 3g and wifi on at the same time.

    Might have had other issues but can't think of them at the time.

    Question: Do I need to unroot prior to a factory reset?

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    That's a start. If issue is still ongoing trade in your phone or call at&t for samsung warranty (over 30 days)
