    For all the reasons you should root your device here is one great reason not to root your device. Not too long ago Verizon rolled out Advanced calling. This allows you to enjoy High Def Voice and Video Calls. With this you can also surf while you are talking on the phone. If your phone is rooted you won't be able to enable Advanced calling. These are two things I can live without. It only works if both parties are using it. You could also burn through your data pretty quickly with this since video calls do use your data. Is this enough to keep you from rooting your phone?

    My LG G3 on 24B (rooted) had functional Advanced Calling. I used it to call my dad lots of times when he wanted to show me something at his house, and I was somewhere else.

    This might not be the case with other ROMs out there, but for me, it was functional.

    My NEXUS 6 is rooted, I call my wife's G3 which is also rooted with HD calling. Kids even tether their tablets at the same time I'm talking to my wife. I'm still grandfathered unlimited data on both phones.

    I don't see myself using it anytime soon anyway. None of my friends or family are on VZW.

    Oh well. I don't care about Advanced calling. I have one family member on Verizon. The rest don't use cell phones.

    I was under the impression that using it wouldn't count against data? I'm assuming that only applies to voice calls then? Not that I really care. Nobody I know that has a device that's capable of it at this point cares to use it.

    It's data for video...
    Advanced Calling 1.0 is available at no additional charge, and HD Voice is included in existing plans.

    • HD Voice calls are billed as standard voice calls according to your plan. No data charges apply.
    • Mobile-to-Mobile calls that happen to be HD Voice calls are charged just like traditional Mobile-to-Mobile calls and are billed against your monthly minute allowance according to your plan.
    • A video call is an HD Voice call combined with real-time video. The voice portion is billed as a standard voice call, according to your plan. The video portion is billed as data, according to your data plan. No data charges apply to video calls transmitted over Wi-Fi.

    Note: An average 1-minute video call uses about 6 - 8 MB of data. The actual data consumption of your video call may vary.

    I don't kept it turned on because it requires a strong 4glte signal and if you don't have one you will get dropped calls especially if you move between 4g and 3g signals. Not worth the hassle! In Frederick, MD we have areas of downtown that are 3g and 1x only, even the Verizon corp store is in a poor signal location. You would think they would have located there corp store in an area with a quality signal.
