That's an interesting option... Thanks.
I'm thinking though that I don't want to extend the contract on any of my phones for now. The wireless game is changing and although Sprint seems pretty solid for now they've been in pretty dire straights lately and I'm thinking it might be smart to keep my options open. Who knows what will happen in this game 2 years from now. I doubt I'll leave sprint anytime soon but 2 years is a long time.
I'll keep that in mind though.
Wife walks in...
Wife: Hey what are you doing?
me: Nada, phones finally rootable.
