This may have been discussed before, and I haven't found anything on it. I bought my phone and in-therefore own my phone. Should I not be allowed to have full access to the piece of equipment if I so want? I'm not renting it, such as in the case of a cable box, nor am I leasing, rent-to-own, etc...I understand the need to block users out from certain areas of the phone for the general public to ensure uniform reliability and technical support, but as the owner of the individual piece of equipment, should HTC be ethically bound to release information on how to give me full root access to the equipment that I paid for? Am I missing something? Thoughts please.
