    Thats the question can you tell if your phone is rooted or not. I have read (on these forums) of a person taking there phone in for service and the Verizon rep told him his phone was rooted and was no longer in waranty.

    This is a consern for my brother (his phone is rooted) and I would assume others as well. Is there an easy way to tell if your phone has been rooted. How would Verizon detect it?

    This is how to tell for sure:

    1. Download a terminal application from the market (there are plenty of free ones).
    2. Start the terminal application
    3. Type su and hit enter
    If you get a permission denied then your phone is not rooted. This is also a way to show Verizon that your phone is not rooted if they tell you otherwise.

    very good info :)

    Now if you have a rooted phone and want to un-root it (wow is that even a word LMAO) is there a way?
