It means you have "Root", the Linux equivalent of "Administrator" on windows. Most manufacturers sell phones without root as average users are less likely to break their own phone with limited permissions.

The advantage of having it is that you can edit system critical things, and use amazing tools like Titanium Backup(<- get it if you root).

Some phones can be rooted with programs like SuperOneClick, the rest need to be flashed with a rew ROM(copy of Android from the mod community).

What are the best SMS apps out there? I've tried both Handcent & Go SMS Pro and while they're both highly customisable, neither allow you to change how many message appear on the first screen and IMO it looks crap. I know I can change the font and have played around with that but had no luck. I could be doing something wrong but I'd love to be able to fit 10 - 12 message on the screen when I open the app, rather than 6 -7.

They look brutal alright. I went back to the stock SE messaging. Miss the popup though.

I just tried that one a few minutes ago and it was the same - the conversations in the conversation window are just too big and you can only see 8 (I think) in total. They could be much more efficient with this space.
