Re: All carriers are terrible so root and get good features.

said by BJK :

Just like any smart phone, you have to root / jailbreak it to uninstall junk you don't want and install things that aren't normally available through their app store. Ok, so root and get on with it.

Just keep in mind that once you root, you create a locked door to the Secure Element on the phone... where no door existed before. As with any lock, it's only a matter of time before a hacker creates a key. It's difficult which is why it's not been done yet. But I'm betting it does happen. An app will be created that can automatically gain root access and then it's game over.
