    I actually read somewhere that is wasn't going to be a mass update. That samsung and sprint were just going to add it on to Epics from a certain time frame on.

    So far from what I can tell sprint has no plans to put Sprint ID on any high end devices. The service is to mainly help people who are new to smart phones get used to the types of customization available. People buying the epic should not fall into this category.

    This is Pure BS, Why push more Bloat ware on those who use high end devices, I hope it is an optional Sprint market add-on

    There's definitely a way to turn this off. If you look at the evo, don't they have "profiles" such as sports or social. Its basically just adding and removing apps for your liking, mostly based to new smartphone users who do not know where to start when downloading apps

    But aren't most of us rooted? So it really does not matter unless you want it and are rooted. Then your screwed : p

    I'm not rooted, I'm not techie enough to root my phone. Plus if you root your phone all warantees and insurance is void, I paid way to much for this device not to have a backup plan if it breaks, or bricks. But any who...I'm not gonna talk ill about the ID untill it gives me somthing not to like. I guess ill try it when it comes out, if it sucks..hopefully you can disable it. Time will tell. ~B

    Yes rooting does void the warranty but if you have insurance on it from sprint and you brick it just go to sprint and tell them you lost it. Then they don't know what you did to it and you get another one.

    Actually a simple restore using Odin will put your phone back to stock and then you can take it in you can also remove any and all super user signs in your /system
    Odin could possibly save you frogman brick as will a restore from clockwork depending on the circumstances.

    Or try muscles method if you brick to the point of no return as you should have insurance for this expensive advice. One because I don't want a case and 7 bucks sounds like a good deal to save 400 or more bucks. 2, I bodyboard a lot and if I'm hanging out at the beach and someone steals my phone I'm covered.

    Yeah, restoring to a stock kernel/rom pretty much removes all sign of rooting. As long as it's not bricked, you can pretty much do this and still get warranty work done.


    Also, rooting your phone in no way invalidates your insurance you get from sprint. You can do pretty much whatever you want with it and the insurance will still cover it, though depending on what it (the problem) is you may be liable for a $100 deductible charge on the phone.
