    So the two year contract I signed with Verizon is null and void??? What...you mean the amount of money they charge me isn't extortion? Oh, I guess you're going to tell me the chains they have all over my phone doesn't constitute slavery either huh..??

    This can't happen because messing with the OS can have an impact on the hardware. As just one example, suppose you root and use an overclocking tool? Just like on a PC, abuse of overclocking can result in a fried processor, transistors, etc.

    While I am all for the companies being forced to leave the bootloader unlocked (who would buy a PC that didn't allow upgrading the OS?) , I can see there being a clause saying it voids the warranty.
