Just received my first smart phone, the Commando. I'm pretty good with the PC but a complete noob when it comes to this Android. I'm charging it now and after I activate it and reload my contacts, was wondering what I should do next? Should I update the firmware? How do I know what version I have? I've also read about "rooting" the phone. Correct me if I'm wrong, that is unlocking the phone so I can remove or freeze apps that I don't want to use. I take it it will help the phone operate smoother. Also read about problems people have updating the phone after rooting it because they deleted apps. So I should only freeze them? What app do I need for rooting the phone? Or should I? What keyboard should I get? and anything else for that matter? Sorry for so many questions with my first post, but I've learnd to get it right the first time. I'm sure I'll have alot more questions. Thanks in advance for your help.
