    So am I correct in my assumption that if root my TB (like I have with my OG Droid) there is NO REASON to pay for the wifi hotspot so long as I have an an unlimited data plan?

    Not sure about that yet. Not that I have heard. I would imagine it will take a week or two, but as long as it isn't significantly different from the other HTC phones, should be doable.

    If a phone is rooted can it be 'put back' if need to go to Verizon for service? Or is it a done deal and you have voided the warranty.

    Yes, you can "put it back" to stock. You simply flash a stock, non-rooted ROM in the same manner in which you flashed a custom ROM after rooting. I had my rooted OG Droid's speaker die and needed to return it to the store for a swapout. It took all of five minutes to download the stock, unrooted update.zip file and flash it. When the phone rebooted, it came up just like it did on day one with no root access.:)

    Can't wait for a root to become available, VZW stuffed this phone with so much bloatware.

    A guy already tried z4 and it didn't work. I'm sure there will be a method released in a few days. Maybe sooner

    Now that it's out, I'm sure that we'll be seeing a root momentarily, likely within the next few days(3-4). The TBolt is so similar, software wise, to the Evo, Incredible and Desire that we should be enjoying all our Rommy goodness soon.
