    My wife bought me a Sprint S5 900P online for Christmas. After playing with it I noticed it was rooted. I really don't know what that means! My main question is will I be able to unlock it or get it flashed to another carrier?? Any info will be greatly appreciated!!

    My wife bought me a Sprint S5 900P online for Christmas. After playing with it I noticed it was rooted. I really don't know what that means!It means that you can run apps that need administrative access to the operating system.

    Yes. Rooting has nothing to do with SIM-locking. Whether it will work on another carrier is the question. It depends on the frequencies that carrier uses in your area. Not all phones have radios for all frequencies. (In fact, no phone has radios for all frequencies.)
