    Problems after root.

    I rooted using the easy root with linux. No off and on I have to reboot my phone because every phone number I call is out of service. Sometimes I loose 3g. All I removed was the 2 games, lets play golf and asphalt 5.. How do I fix this or can I?? Thanks..

    Try dialing *228 and see if that helps.

    Did that. Still does it.. I'm thinking its something to do with rooting. Not sure if unrooting will fix it or not.

    Likely that those problems are unrelated to rooting. First thing to try is removing the battery for 20 seconds or so. Have you ruled out a service related issue (i.e. do you know anybody nearby with Cricket service that you can....um.....call)?

    Yes. I pulled the battery and my calls started working but still stops now and then and I have to pull the battery again to make calls. It happens 2-3 times a week. My friend hasn't had a service problem but he still has a flip phone.

    You say you only removed two apps, but what did you install? Change any settings? Next step may be factory reset.

    I installed ADW launcher, weatherbug, adfree, tibu, 9 games. When I exit out if nfs shift the phone will reboot automatically. The problem happens after playing Shift. If I pull the battery after I play shuft I don't have any priblems. I think its the game..

    Many games are poorly written. Very possibly could be a game.
