    Will switch this phone to another number and get a moto x on my current number. Will they deny me if they notice its rooted(quite obvious, running a custom ROM) or should I return the phone to stock before taking it to metro?

    Do not let them see your device is rooted with custom rom or they will flag your account and you won't be able to use warranty. If you don't care for warranty then I guess it doesn't matter lol.

    my spirit was rooted with GT's rom on it when i went to buy my Mega, They didn't give a crap. Of corse when someone is standing in front of them with a woad of cash all they care about is that money.

    It all depends on store but better careful then regret.

    I always factory reset my phone before taking it to Metro Store or send it to corporate for exchange.

    I haven't been to a Metro store in years and have been a customer longer then i've been on this forum. Just do all you need on line or call them. Thats why we root in the first place Lol:D
    Happy Holidays

    When you dial *228 one of the first options are " Change phone number ". So you can change it anytime without going to a store.
