The news we have today will definitely cause many to give a second thought to rooting their Sprint device. From the image above you’ll see that Sprint has a policy in place for handling rooted devices! We all know that the norm for carriers is to look down on you in shame if you root your Android device and not provide any support whatsoever. Many loyal Sprint customers, myself included, that love to tinker can take a collective sigh of relief, and no longer worry that you’ll be without support if you ever need to exchange that rooted device. They will take note that you’ve rooted your android device as it states, but they’ll do what they can to help and if a fix isn’t found, per standard procedure they will start the process of getting you an exchange.
Just note that although this policy is in place, it could be likely they won’t replace it if the problem was caused by rooting the device. So keep that in mind. I for one am glad to see this. I’ve been a customer of Sprint for a long while, and my complaints have been minimal. If you are a Sprint customer and have been on the fence about rooting your device, does this news give you that extra push to go ahead and do it? Let us know in the comments.
