My biggest reason for rooting.
Last night I discovered that something was wrong with my Bionics hdmi port. When plugged into a TV, half of the screen was covered in static. Tried different cables and a different TV with the same results, so I ran a fresh titanium backup of and all apps and data. This morning I went to Verizon and got the phone replaced. I went home, plugged into a PC, rooted, downloaded titanium and 15 minutes later all of my apps and their settings were on my phone and ready to go. The only thing it didn't handle was my custom ringtones. It even got the custom searches I created in Google PlacesI'd guess it would have taken me 2 or 3 hours to get it set up without root/titanium. The whole lack of a complete backup is the only failing I see in the Android world. Well, that and the st upid robot voice for navigation.

Your phone will only be the latest and greatest for a few months.

OK, just noticed my first problem (probably because of rooting)...
When I attempt to look at the contact details for someone in my address book I get the following error:
"The application Contacts Storage has stopped unexpectedly"
Sent from my Droid Bionic
EDIT: Found the problem... It was, in fact, something I froze. There are a number of "authenticators" used by MotoBlur. DO NOT freeze ANY of them.
