    How long would it take vzw/ motorola to see that you rooted ur phone and returned it also how long would it take them to charge you for the replacment?

    You probably will not like my answer - It seems a lot of people have been sending their devices in because of hacking and rooting "user error" and expecting VZW to replace it at no cost under Warranty - I read your prior post in another thread and believe your problem as you stated it "Stuck at the (M)" to be a result of rooting and not a warranty issue - all this does is bring up the overall cost of everything for everyone involved, myself included :icon_evil:

    - IMO if you are not 100% about what you are getting yourself into and are not prepared to deal with the consequences, then you shouldn't do it.

    ...and if they charge you full price for the replacement you have no one to blame but yourself

    As far as the question you proposed - I would say 60-90 days

    When someone tries to cheat the companies in the manner you have suggested, the company gets back at the hackers, or in our case as droid users, rooters, by jacking up the price of the units and the services. DONT EVER RETURN A ROOTED PHONE TO THE FACTORY!!! Unless you know how to unroot and you do so beforehand, however if you brick your phone, you might as well just pay the replacement because there is NOTHING anyone can do about that.

    Whether you've done it personally or not, I am warning you now not to try it. I apologize if that post insinuated that you were the culprit, but I react like that because some of my friends are the dip****s that would do that in the first place. It pisses me off just hearing about that sort of thing. Once again, my apologies.

    Just one will not affect the prices too much, but they know we're doing this because of all these forums on the web, so if too many get sent back after being rooted, **** will fly.

    I hope you do get charged. We all have to pay the stupid tax at some point in our lives and I believe it is your turn.

    Cheers!

    How did you manage to root it if it was defective out of the box?

    Part of the responsibility of rooting is realizing if you brick it you must then eat it. That's why these mods tell people to be sure before you root.

    I know that when you return a device to VZW they go through it with a fine tooth comb. I've had them charge for dental and sings that had nothing with the device screwing up

    I goofed up once and had to return a D1. Didn't have to I guess, but did. Anyway, it was rooted and all that mess. I thought there might be a surprise on my bill, but 10 months later...still nothing.

    But since then, multiple SBFs have been released and I now have no reason to ever walk back into VZW for "bricking" my phone.

    So you might and you might not. I'm guessing not.
