    my girlfriends sister is asking me to root her phone because she is sick of how laggy and twitchy stock is. only problem i have with it is if i do it and say she breaks her phone will she be able to claim insurance? or will the insurance company not allow it? i know it voids the warranty but her phone i believe is one of the more better made so warranty wont really be a problem.

    If it breaks, SBF/unroot, hooray no more root. Should solve any problems with insurance.

    being rooted voids insurance? and i mean like say she drops it getting out of the car and the screens cracked or something that is worthy of an insurance claim rather than a warranty claim

    as long as you unroot it before you send it back.

    just tell your girl to be careful with it

    Warranty and insurance are two very different things. The insurance company doesn't care about the software, just that you pay the co-pay. The warranty is voided by rooting; this means Motorola/Verizon won't take the phone back with it rooted.

    Oh, and it's never a good idea to root someone else's phone. You'll never get rid of them over every small twitch on the phone if you do. :)

    Point her at this forum, in particular at my n00b thread and at the root FRG22D thread. If she wants to go through with it, help her, and let her know about the guys with the green names and lightbulbs. :) If she wants root that bad she can have it, but she'll have to earn it. ;)

    Boy, would she be disappointed if you told her that by coming to the Dark Side she'd get cookies, then!
