the majority of us, the reps, dont really care if your rooted. Hell we wont bother checking just for an esn swap. nor do we ever check. ive never seen any of my co workers check. Even the tech's dont care as long as they dont have to send the phone back rooted for a device swap

I just went thru this. I got a premier evo 3d in the mail yesterday and activated my 3d. No problems at all doing it online. I tried to activate my old 4g on my wife's line but got an error message online that my plan needed a change (the $10 premium as she was coming from a POS samsung moment) and to call sprint tech.
Sprint was able to activate the 4g's esn but the phone needed to be manually programmed. I couldn't get into the manual editing menus thru the dialer. I would enter ##475002# and the dialer would hang. I tried different roms (I was originally using Mik's 2.0) and nothing worked. Sprint wanted me to take it in to get a new device. I unrooted it just to be safe then retried the dialer code again and it worked. I called sprint back and was able to go thru the manual programming.
So getting to my point, try to enter the dialer code above to make sure you can get to the edit screen before you try to activate your 4g on your wife's line.
Thanks for all the replies. Ran into same problem as Deutch and ended up downloading stock rom from Rom Mgr.(free plug) and was able to get EPST access again. I assume that when I go in with the stock rom they can switch the number and then I can restore any other ROM I want?"Now I may be an ***** but there is one thing I am not, sir and that, sir is an *****." -Peter Griffin

Re: Do I need to unroot og evo?
Like others have said here, I doubt you have anything to worry about. Both in store folks I dealt with had rooted phones too, so, they don't care if you do too, however, per Sprint police, they probably cannot "encourage or assist" you with it. The only thing I ran into is when I had CM6 on a Hero, I could not use OTA Activation or the ##codes. I had to Nandroid and flash a Sense ROM first, then flash back to CM6. This was before CM7, so it might be different assuming you are using something like that.

Re: Do I need to unroot og evo?
I turned mine in at the sprint store rooted with cm7 on it and even told the dude, its rooted does that matter and he just looked at me like i was speaking german to him. He didnt care at all. The only thing I think they care about is trying to warranty one out when its rooted.
