    if I was to root my phone how hard would it be to go back and if I do root it is it worth it because of the locked boot loader

    Not hard at all really. if you use z4root, it has an "un-root" feature as well as being able to root.

    Rooting with a locked bootloader, IMO, is still better than running the phone at a 25-50% capability handicap. With root you have the ability to theme, free tether, change multiple settings to increase the phones native capabilities, overclock/underclock to save on battery, etc,etc, etc...

    First thing...no need to disparage a whole community of people with an epithet...I am sure it wont be tolerated on here...so take that advice first from a regular member before a Moderator admonishes you...:icon_eek:

    Second...if you root, and then decide to unroot, Verizon isnt going to go through the entire phone...they will at most go in and look for any "root" apps and SuperUser icons.. If it is that big of a concern...prior to going in, just do a Factory Reset...clear the entire phone back to "out of the box" state.

    I wont say anything about a 15 year old sporting a "$700" phone...:wacko:

    Indeed! :)
    I usually end up teaching the "techs" about Android because a lot of them are just as clueless as most reps!
