    Hello all, I'm new to both Android phones and eA. Finally made the switch from Windows Mobile. Being new to the Android OS and the forums any suggestions, pearls of wisdom and patience with my ignorance is appreciated.

    I read a lot about 'rooting' Android phones, but I really don't know much about it...what it is; pros & cons; how to do it. Is there a good source of information?

    Are there any general 'rules of thumb' with Android phones, kind of an idiots guide or do's & don'ts?

    For rooting your phone look read up here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1005292

    Rooting allows you to change your romantic, overclock, undeclock, remove crapware from Verizon... ummm and many many other things. We have a few threads on rooting here.

    Rule of thumb.... read read read, if you follow directions you will be golden. Most things can be undone if you mess up, main one that can't is changing radios, if you mess that up you are in deep in trouble. But you shouldn't need to mess with that right now.

    If you do root, you will lose the ability to get carrier updates but that's necessarily I bad thing.

    If you have questions about anything specific be sure to ask away.

    Welcome. One suggestion I would have on rooting is get to know your device first. No need to be in a huge hurry to do it. Learn how things function, and it will benifit you greatly.
