    I'm moving from an Incredible to the Inc2 (I know I know it's an old phone, best I could manage under the circumstances)

    What I want to know, and this is a more general question anyway, is should I transfer Service to the Inc2 BEFORE I start messing with root/S-OFF/flashing new ROMs, or should I try to get the new phone set up with root/ROM first?
    I've been looking around various forums and I can't seem to find anywhere that covers this.

    On Verizon if that makes any difference.

    Basically my concern is that it will be harder/impossible to transfer service after flashing a new ROM. To me it would seem easier to get everything set up and then do it so I don't have to keep re-activating if things go hinky and I have to try different ROMs etc.

    Any insight would be appreciated!

    Transfer service before you root/ROM. Technically, root itself won't cause problems. However, installing a custom ROM, especially AOSP derived ROMs, can create problems with establishing service on a non-activated device.
