I know it's going to be a stupid question, but what does it mean when you root a phone? 😕

Hero or Intercept

I just bought the hero at radio shack for 50 last sunday, but Im kinda thinking of getting the samsung intercept since the hero prolly WILL NOT be getting 2.2 froyo and the intercept is pink. I was also looking at sprints tutorials of the intercept and liked the phone dialer and how the incoming calls and outgoing calls, and phonebook look, i also heard it will have a fast processor and ive always liked samsung, the first htc i had was the touch pro, and that phone lagged alot, and then i had the diamond. I just dumped my pixi bc it was a POS and it was WAYY TO SLOW!! So i think Im gonna exchange the hero for the intercept.

Thinking about a Hero...have a question...

My Samsung m520 finally bit the dust yesterday, so I'm looking for a phone. I test-drove a Moment (because I've been very happy with Samsung in the past) but I was extremely disappointed. Sure, it was great for a little computer that fits in my purse, but for a phone it was lacking so I took it back. The ONE THING I did like about the phone was the proximity sensor on the touch screen...I did not accidentally hang up on anyone with my cheek like my husband has done with his Hero.

My question is: did the Eclair update for the Hero include some kind of fix for that? I know I could probably get used to a) holding the phone away from my face while I'm using it (provided I don't have to use my shoulder to prop it) or b) only using the ph...

Does anyone know what the status is on the Skyfire browser on Android 2.1? It's nice being able to watch videos you couldn't normaly watch but it would be nice to speed it up or rewind it.

Sirius XM app?

I currently have the BB 8330m and am due for an upgrade on 7/1. This phone seems like something I would be interested in and was wondering if the SiriusXM app will work on it? Has anyone tried it? From what I understand the app will work on newer model BBs. I appreciate any help on this topic. Thanks!

Thinking of getting a Hero, have a couple of questions first...

Hi all,

I have Cellular South service and I'm thinking about upgrading my phone and getting the HTC Hero. I've read through this forum and I'm sure my questions have already been answered but, here goes....

1- Cell South does not give the option of adding picture messaging to the phone...when I contacted customer service (via email) regarding this I was told..."Thank you for your email.The HTC Hero is not MMS capable at this time. This is the reason it will not let you select it as a feature. We have an update coming to make it available, however have not been given a release date."...Now, my husband swears that he knows people who have this phone who send and receive picture messages just fine. So, my question is...does it and how...

Access to the app marketplace on the net?

As I've stated in a previous thread I'm seriously looking into getting this phone. I would however like to look and get an idea of the apps out there available for it. I've tried to do searches online for the "Android Market", hoping to find a version that I can look through on my computer before making the leap and getting the phone. Unfortunately I'm not finding it online and it seems to only be available from the phone itself. Is there a way to go on this site on a computer just to have a looksee at what's available before I plunk down so much money?
