Question by ferr: Anybody know about androids and “mobile market”?
Okay , so yesterday i bought a HTC ONE X and well the guy said that he had this program that was really worth it as i could get all free games ect. and it was completely legal, he said i would have to pay 150 dollars to buy it online but he could do it for $ 80 . I dont know anything about androids so with a little persuasion i agreed and he went away with it for 10 minutes.. i got home i googled this “mobile market” and well apparently its free! I actually left the country this morning so i cant go back to the shop.. anyhow my boyfriend has suggested that perhaps he rooted it? which is apparently not good.. so yeah could anybody explain this to me? thanks a bunch!
Noo!! i paid 800 dollars for the phone! 80 dollars for this mobile market thing

Did you pay 80 bucks for having your phone rooted or for the phone? In the latter case, it was probably stolen – the HTC One X sells for around 500 € over here; in the former case, you were swindled – you can root the phone for free if you want to, and in any case you don’t need to root the phone to access the Android Market.
And yes, a lot of apps on the market are free – and a lot of others are for payment. And this doesn’t change with rooting the phone.
