1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    So basically I dropped my motorola droid yesterday & now it won't turn on. There's no insurance on it & it's rooted. I have three questions:
    If I purchase a clean ESN phone off ebay, and I use the activation online or by calling them
    1. Can they tell my original phone was rooted?
    2. If the phone I purchase is already rooted, can it be activated?
    3. Can I activate a newer phone (droid2, droid x), or would this be considered an "upgrade"?

    1: no.... they would only be able to tell if you mailed in the phone and they checked it out themselves.

    2: yes

    3: its only considered an upgrade if you get it subsidized from Verizon.

    subsidized = phone at discount price.
