    That was my thought +1

    I don't think they will deny insurance sure for rooting.

    I really don't care. I usually fix stuff on my own. Since 2001 when I had my 1st phone I never had it serviced by anyone else but me.

    Btw the hammer idea is great. Instead of having phones to repair and resell they will have more stolen and lost claims as well as I accidentally hit it with a hammer claims.

    This whole line of discussion is very fascinating to me. We root our phones knowing full well that doing so will void the warranty. It's stated up front and there is no question about it. However, we don't expect to get caught or have to pay the consequences.

    It's sort of like going 80mph in a 55mph zone. We KNOW it's wrong, but we're hoping we don't get caught and have to pay. Well guess what just happened? Verizon just set up a radar trap around that next bend.

    I understand this argument, but they already have a way to make sure they aren't having to replace phones that were screwed up by a rooter. If you brick your phone, they are gonna know it's rooted because you won't be able to change it back. If your phone is functional enough to unroot, it's most likely the problem has nothing to do with the rooting

    Understood. But I don't think the agreement says they agree to un-void your warranty if you un-root your phone.

    No doubt. I guess I'd have to know the numbers about if they are actually losing money due to people getting replacements after rooting. I would argue if it's not effecting them, then why tick off your faithful customer base just to avoid a few replacements. The vast majority of replacements have nothing to do with rooting

    Of course not. There are plenty of things you could have done to it WHILE rooted thay would make them hesitate to ever offer a warranty on said device again.

    Overclocking, for instance.

    Do we really know that to be true. It's difficult to say without having concrete numbers. More than likely, since the vast majority of users don't root their devices, the returns are much larger for non-rooted devices. Granted, there may have been a bad batch or two, but generally those issues show up pretty soon after purchase. Not 3, 4, 5, 6 months down the road.

    I've had my Bionic since release date last September and outside of the occasional data drop issues, I haven't encountered anything that would cause me to return it.
