My previous device was a Moto Bionic that I had rooted. After I hit my upgrade date I began shopping for a new device. It seemed that the subject of rooting would almost always come up. I use the qualifier 'almost' because the only time it didn't was when I was talking to a young girl at Wal-mart cell phone counter. It seemed that the 20-something guys who were working at both the Big Red corporate store and the Costco kiosk were much more techie, really into andriod based devices, and were also really into rooting. My experience was that when they knew that I had rooted my device they were much more willing to spend time talking about phones and apps, etc. It seemed as though I was viewed as a more serious user/customer. Again, this also included the guy at the Verizon corporate store.
