    I had a rooted Droid 2 and one of the side affects of rooting was it disabled the dedicated camera button. Even after returning to stock it wouldn't work. A Verizon rep told me they were designed to do that when rooted so the reps would know.

    Why would I want to root my Razr when rooting takes away 1 of the processors? Everything I have read says when you root it disables one of the processors. Why would I want to cut the phones processing power in half?

    Verizon telling ghost stories, rooting does nothing to your phone but give you super user access.

    Don't let them tell make you think Keyser Soze is real ;)

    So if I root my Droid Razr it will not affect the processing power, speed (unless I over/under clock), or anything else other than give me more control over my phone?

    It sure won't. You think we would all do it if it did? Super user control, nothing more.

    I think they want to keep you'r business. I have sent a few back Rooted to Verizon and nothing happened. It's all about the 2 year contract roping you in.

    I certainty wouldn't make a habit of telling people it's ok to do that. It's up to the carriers discretion as to whether or not they'll honor a warranty on a rooted phone. If you're smart enough to root your phone, you SHOULD be smart enough to return it to stock before sending it in for service or replacement handset.
    Just sayin

    I never said it was OK. And FYI I couldn't unroot a few because of hardware issues. Just saying I was OK not its OK.
