anyone rooted their android phone?

I reeealllly want to get rid of the bloatware, but I'm pretty nervous since it voids the warranty and my phone is brand new.

 

Thoughts?

Re: anyone rooted their android phone?

  • I considered rooting mine but didn't because I was worried about the warranty. I'm glad that I didn't now because my phone broke last week and Verizon replaced it without any trouble. The bloatware really annoys me too but it doesn't seem to take up enough of the internal memory to make enough of a difference to justify risking the warranty for me.

  • I did ( or rather H did it for me). 

    When H has had to get a new phone he always restores it and never had an issue.

    I've rooted two Androids, (dh & mine). Both our touchscreens broke coincidentally, so I called about a warranty replacement, did a factory reset then sent them in. They never charged us for the replacements and was never notified that I had voided the warranty agreement. Since I restored factory settings, they have no way of telling I had rooted the phone. I have t-mobile, if that matters.

    I say go for it, because it is reversible.
