    Warranty isn't insurance, insurance will replace your phone without a care if its rooted. The warranty is voided when you root because you could, say, superclock the processor and make it overheat so much you melt some internal components. Its a hardware failure, but its your fault the hardware failed, and the manufacturer doesn't want to replace it.
