    AFAIK, it doesn't matter what version of Android you're on and whether it's rooted or not. I've sold phones that were rooted and Verizon reps only asked for the account the phone will be activated on and the IMEI to register the phone on the account.

    No. Just get a sim card and activate online... Or take it in and tell them to just activate it. Since you are rooted you can freeze or delete the updater and never have to worry about an update.

    No, all they pretty much do is pop a SIM card in and that's it.

    And as Cliff said you freeze the updater.

    I've actually had a rep ask how and if I've had any problems after rooting my DROID DNA as I was picking up a NFC enabled sim card.. NO hassle what so ever...
