Ok, so, seeing as how I'm not necessarily the least tech saavy person on here but I could possibly be the least phone tech saavy person on here, I have a few questions about rooting. Advantages, vs. disadvantages per say. I know that rooting it will A: get rid of AT&T bloatware, B: Allow tethering and C: allow sideloading of apps. Now, my questions are - is the bloatware really that bad, and since I don't use tethering or sideloading, is it worth it to me to root my phone? What am I missing? I know the disadvantages are possibly bricking your phone. I've never bricked a phone and I doubt I'd brick this one. I rooted a Samsung Blackjack before and it wasn't too terribly difficult. I had a Samsung Jack (blackjack 3) after that and I never bothered to mess with rooting it. Also, the lag fix.....is that when your screen lags at times when you switch screens or is that something totally different having to do with the GPS? Thanks...I'm starting to dig this forum!
