Android OS is quite customizable but it still restricts "Super User" access to the OS. In many commercially launched versions the phone manufactures restrict even more options and features.

Rooting your Android gives you "Super User" control and access to the root file system.  This can enable such options as flashing a custom ROM to your hardware, which may include extra features like over-clocking, under-clocking, advanced memory management and many more advanced options.

With great power comes great responsibility.  Talk to a Phone Freaks expert about your hardware and your reasons for Rooting.  Contact a Phone Freaks representative who will be happy to talk to you about your rooting options.
