    Verizon doesn't use SIM cards.

    You should probably look at the threads that explain what rooting means, like this one.

    Try reading it.

    I know it doesn't use sim cards, that's why I don't know how it would keep the information after the os is redone. I asume the verizon info is not just programed into android, so I was wondering if it got wiped when rooting. I gues I'll read more and I'll try not to ask stupid questions next time. Haha. sorry

    I'm fairly certain once your rooted, you with no longer receive OTA's. You can still do manual updates to programs though.

    Rooting does NOT prevent you from receiving OTA updates.

    SPRecovery prevents those OTA updates from taking effect.

    HOLY CRAP!!! You have no idea how lucky u droid owners are. without rooting it already has a terminal. You should see the iPhone. When you jailbreak the iphone it gets a billion more features than jailbreaking the droid. not because the droid has less features but because apple places a crapload of restrictions on iOS users. If it wasnt for jailbreaking (iphone) there wouldnt even be an appstore. perty much every famous apple benifit, was copied off a jailbreaking feature. I am currently waiting for my droid but when i get it, its gonna have the hell rooted out of it.

    So I could root my droid running 2.1 and when 2.2 finally gets released I'll still get it, right? And thanks to everyone for the information already posted.
