I am new to the forum and I am getting my first smart phone and waiting for my Fascinate to arrive through the mail. I don't know a lot about them but I have been reading a lot and doing my research. I plan on rooting my phone. I was wondering what "bloatware" that comes with the phone was not needed for normal functions that I could get rid of? (Ex. I read that if you delete Google talk you won't be able to download apps?)Also, should I upgrade from the 2.1 and if so, should I do so before or after I root my phone and git rid of the bloatware? Thanks in advance.
