    "In theory" then...with previous phones...if you unroot you still get the updates??

    with previous phones you unroot you'd get the updates.
    again though, read my first post in this thread.... there is evidence that VZW has been working at ways to know if you're rooted or not. personally I wont root until after 14 days AND when there are some stable ROM's available.

    Yeah, as my OP said though, I got a little trigger happy and the damage is done already. So as long as I can unroot and get an update that fixes some bugs I should be ok. Not that I have much of a choice

    I've already read about a couple idiots who have screwed up the phone by rooting and then returning it with no prob's. So thus far, it doesnt look like VZW can tell anything. I'm sure we will be able to unroot and take any OTA's. This will all be moot soon anyway as an SBF will be along shortly.

    Lmao at this thread. When an update does come out we'll be able to copy and upload the file then just download it and install update.zip. Installing it will break root, but someone will figure out how to root the update soon.

    BTW I was rooted when I returned my first one with broken speaker and those "smart" reps had no clue.

    They may not know in the store, but whos to say that when the phone goes back to VZW to be formatted and checked for issues there isnt something reported in a log file of some sort? We have no idea yet.
