    The one improvement I'm noticing with the replacement phone so far (now that Ive had it for a week) is that the stock web browser opens way faster than it did on my old mercury.

    I had a habit of clearing the browser Cache every few days which would speed up the load time but it would always get stuck on a white screen for 4 - 5 seconds when loading (after clearing cache) and up to 15 seconds to load after a few days of not clearing cache, it didn't matter if Wifi was on or not.

    If the browser would happen to stay in memory then it opened fast but im referring to when its not in memory before loading it.

    I haven't had to clear the cache once yet with my replacement and the browser still opens much quicker than it ever did (1 second tops) I had the homepage set on google.com on the old and new phone. Not sure what might of caused that discrepancy, everything else seems the same so far between both phones.

    When doing a factory reset, don't forget to call*228 as well.

    Can anyone confirm that they check for ROOT? I'm unable to unroot and I'm going to factory reset and hope it works! I'm taking the merc in tomorrow if there's any other ways to restore straight from the phone or ways to hide ROOT. I deleted some stock apps so I dunno I jus want a new merc!

    One of the developers here might be able to chime in on evidence of rooting....
    Thank you seems to be my only option! But the superuser is going to be there

    It might not be the same everywhere but the person that took my old phone just made sure it worked briefly by swiping through a few screens, then asked if I had any contacts I wanted transferred and I said no thanks because the phone had just been factory reset, she then removed back cover, pulled the battery and checked it for a couple seconds and that was it.

    After that it took them about 15 minutes to get the new phone programed / entered in the system.

    Ya they sent me to the corporate store on 6460 N Blackstone, I went in before noon on a weekday and it wasn't very busy but the last time I was there on a weekend it was pretty bad.

    I downloaded a app where it hides the apps that you don't want seen. I turned mine in. They had no clue it was rooted.

    Would anyone really turn their phone in without doing a full factory reset? That's crazy.

    I have to agree a lot of the time they don't check.
