I've got a Samsung Intercept I've had for a number of years, and I've long been annoyed with the poor battery life of the device, which is made worse by the bloatware that Virgin Mobile insists that I keep one the phone, that I never use.  Worse still by the fact that no oversized lithium-ion batteries are available for this device, because it's a slider and aftermarket batteries often need  to attack to the back of the device in such a way to make sliding impossible.  Well, it's long since off warranty, if it ever had one, and so this weeked I resolved for finally root this device and install a different rom without all that bloatware.  I did some research and found a rom call 'IcyPop' for the Intercept that runs Android 4.x.  I must say that I'm impressed at this guy's talent, and the addition of a cpu control that backs the cpu speed down to 66mhz while locked is quite the battery saver.  I think that my standby battery life more than tripled, even though my battery dies pretty fast if I'm using it. 

Which brings me to my question.  My device is capable at running at 66mhz, 266mhz, 400mhz and 800mhz.  Nothing else in between.  Does anyone know what the minimum speed that I could set the 'waking' cpu speed to that can support a proper phone call?

And if there is anyone else out there with a Samsung Intercept or Moment, consider doing this.  IcyPop isn't just fast and easy on the battery, it's beautiful.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

Sounds like your phone was totally rooted even before you got root on it.
