samsung galaxy s2 (newbie questions!)

hope you guys can help me out! when i search for SGS2 online, it shows many different models, such as SGS2 T989, SGS2 D710, SGS2 i777, SGS2 i9100

samsung galaxy s2 | eBay

i thought only got one type of SGS2.

also, what's the current going price for SGS2? i see online it's like 700-750, any other place to get it?

does anyone know recontract line with monthly payment of around $25, how much will it cost for SGS2?

Rooting is the equivalent of jailbreaking.

That depends on what you do after your device is rooted.

You could freeze those unwanted apps so they stop running immediately and at boot time and indirectly you can have better battery life.
