    Slug, a moderator, has closed the above mentioned thread because discussing something that would be a violation of Sprints TOS is not permitted.

    I hope rooting is acceptable under the carrier TOS or half your site is going to disappear. I know it isn't acceptable for Virgin Mobile.

    I can understand banning the discussion of pirating of apps, but isn't this going a little too far?

    In the Sprint TOS...

    Our Right To Suspend Or Terminate Services
    We can, without notice, suspend or terminate any Service at any time for any reason. For example, we can suspend or terminate any Service for the following: (a) late payment; (b) exceeding an Account Spending Limit; (c) harassing/threatening/abusing/offending our employees or agents; (d) providing false or inaccurate information; (e) interfering with our operations; (f) using/suspicion of using Services in any manner restricted by or inconsistent with the Agreement and Policies; (g) breaching, failing to follow, or abusing the Agreement or Policies; (h) providing false, inaccurate, dated, or unverifiable identification or credit information or becoming insolvent or bankrupt; (i) modifying a Device from its manufacturer specifications (for example, rooting the device); (j) failing to use our Services for an extended period of time; (k) failing to maintain an active Device in connection with our Services; or (l) if we believe the action protects our interests, any customer's interests, or our networks.

    Looks like you guys better remove the rooting section.

    Correct, in accordance with the wishes of the site owner.

    If that is indeed the case, then the decision rests with Rob Jackson, the owner of AF.

    Not for me to say, as we lowly mods don't make the rules. However as you questioned AF policy in the public forum I'm sure Rob himself or Phases will want to answer the accusation. I'll make sure they are aware of this topic so that they can do so asap.

    How can you justify locking one thread that discusses a violation of TOS and not all the ones about rooting?
  7. Phases


    Rooting, if against the TOS, could result in a suspended account. That is on you and your responsibility and we're willing to aide in letting you make that choice. It is your device, you should have that choice.

    Tethering without a carrier required required plan is theft of services. You are stealing from the carrier. It goes beyond modifying your own personal device.

    This is something we are not willing to help members do. Much like talk of how to work the system to return devices you've broke, etc. That too is theft.

    These issues aren't related to rooting in this sense and shouldn't be compared as such. This is a decision made by the owner of this privately run site, which we have the right to do and enforce.

    Risking your device == ok.
    Theft == not okay.

    Hope this clears things up a little. :)

    edit: I'm going to put a note in the rules thread and touch on this.
