and I'll leave it at that. I've only had a smart phone for about 8 mo. Watch some vids, play a couple games waiting at Dr. s office,take pics, etc. Hacking into it is not something I'm up for. Have had to re root it a couple times - enough for me thnx:) Keep us posted on your efforts.. Say , this is a stupid question,maybe, but can I install apps from Google downloaded through my computer while the phone is hooked up via USB ? Just curious.
