    Did i miss something? My friend with a rooted phone dropped it and cracked the screen and he got his exact same phone back from HTC covered by the warranty...Anyone else hearing of stories like this?

    (Does the warranty even cover damage that was caused by a physical force such as screen cracks by the ground and things?)

    Yes apparently HTC will fix/replace a handset with a hardware defect under warranty regardless of the unlocked bootloader, which is the way it should be.
    Of course not, it's a warranty, not an insurance plan.

    If this is true I'm going to have a difficult time talking myself out of rooting it.

    Well I think that i may unlock my bootloader soon. I could totally use the extra space on the microSD and extra RAM.

    I dunno if you guys have ever experienced an unlocked boot on the N1... but there is literally an "unlocked" icon on the screen when you boot up the phone (the screen with the Nexus "X"). There is no way they will "miss it" if they actually power on the phone. But... like others have said, maybe they are fixing hardware issues regardless.

    I'm aware of the obvious lock you may see after the bootloaders been unlocked but man I'd love to root my phone. Anyone else have stories? i'd love some conformation and what not.

    The statement I got from HTC was that with unlocked phones they would cover unrelated issues. ie if they could prove that the issue was in ANY way caused by a nnon stock rom, your outta luck. however hardware issues they would continue to cover as they would be unaffected by the rooting.
