    Question Thinking about switching from Sprint to Verizon. Have a question...

    I am sick and tired of the slow data speeds on Sprint and am thinking of paying the ETF and going to Verizon. Instead of signing up for a contract and getting an S4, I am thinking about trying to find a used S3 or Droid DNA and porting my Sprint number over and signing up. Is that possible? I want to switch to Verizon now, but really don't want to enter into a contract being only 6-8 months away from the S5 or the next HTC.

    There's a few phones I've been looking at on Swappa. A few of the good ones are rooted and I was wondering if Verizon will flip out if I bring in a rooted phone to get activated.

    They won't even notice. You can usually activate your own phone by calling the activation number which is all they do in the store.
    If we all agree on it, it must be true.[citation needed​]

    I probably can't so that since I don't have a Verizon account yet. I'd be switching from Sprint.

    The one I was looking at has a custom rom. Do they have to reboot the phone or anything? I'd think they would get all *****y if they saw a custom boot screen.

    They won't care! Rooting only voids your warranty and if your bringing a device that doesn't matter anyway.

    Galaxy S4!!!
    Nexus 5 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
