    Well, they have a big app store filled with many fun apps for you to play with. Plus you can also rute your phone so you can edit game scores and get free WiFi hot spot. You can also get free games (you dont need to rute your phone for this) just go on 4shared.com and just type in any game you want then at the end of the name just add .apk and see if they have it.

    Well the main reason i did it is to use WiFi hot spot. I can give out wifi to my computer, ipod, ipad, and so many other things too without the extra cost you would have to spend to get this activated on your phone. Another reason is you can edit your games. You can edit there high scores, unlocks, and money (for certain games) Well you can basically edit any value on the game. You can back up your stuff easily and it comes with very cool command apps. There may be much more into it, but thats what i use it for.

    Well, i guess some phones may have that already, mine did but for me to use it, i would have to pay 30$ extra a month. Well, your lucky bro! But if you want any of the other things included to ruting your phone, then go for it. But i may include that ruting your phone is alot different than jailbreaking your ipod/ipad/iphone. Its difficult, especially for it being your 1st time. If you mess up you can soft/hard brick your phone. If you hard brick your phone, you can use your phone again, it wont boot up. But if you soft brick, you can fix that. If you want to rute your phone, i suggest going and finding a "specialist" on this. I did it well for my 1st time, but i did get help from my friend. So this is up to you.

    Lol, ok. Just have fun with it, i am at least. Again if you want free games (without ruting your phone) Go to 4shared on your phone and type in any game you want then ending your title with .apk.
    Example: Need For Speed Shift.apk (and it that doesnt work try it with no spaces) Example: needforspeedshift.apk
    Make sure to add the (DOT)apk.
