So I just purchased a Rezound yesterday and its on its way here still. I'm really into rooting/ROMs/etc and expect to get into it with the Rezound like I have with my Droid2. I've been reading up on some stuff and see that I must unlock my bootloader through the HTCDev site. Now this isn't a problem at all except for the fact that I am reading things about my phone no longer being in warranty when I'm done...
Does this mean that once I put in a request at HTCDev, Verizon won't replace my phone if for some reason it is defective? Even if it is of no fault of mine?
For example... if I unlock my bootloader and put a ROM on it and find out that my 4G radio has an issue that is due to faulty manufacturing, will I be able to take it back to Verizon for a replacement? What about if I unroot, relock, and flash the stock ROM back on my phone? Because if this totally kills my warranty I might not want to get this phone lol.
Also, what about if I get insurance? Does that make a difference?
