Im not a network engenire

Im not a network engenire so Im not sure what the possible negative impact of a rooted phone on Verizons network could be.

I suppose that if someone wanted to they might to try to upload harmfull info onto the network if they wanted to but who knows.

I would think that the carrier however does have the right to limit what kind/type of devices that are on there network...the same way a business owner has the right to refuse service to someone without shoes and a shirt lol.

I think that if your doing personal mods to your device that should be allowed but unless theres a way to ensure that it just stays personal ie: taking off preloaded software or adding a custom OS to your phone then they probably should keep it locked right now.

I dont know if theres a proven example of a rooted device interfering with other customers calls or service but if it happend Im sure it would make the front page of every news company that the cell provider has lax security lol..Then when where would Verizon be? I wonder how many law suits would pop up because the network crashed for a week lol
