    Can I root my phone before I activate it with Verizon?

    What would be the advantage of rooting before activating?

    There is none....however some people switching providers or swapping phones but haven't activated yet may want to get a jump on things

    Exactly. I am switching from a Droid to a Fascinate. I planned to give my sister my Droid but wasn't going to see her for a few days. I was gonna get a jump start on things in the mean time. My plans went out the window though. The phone I bought was on the stolen list so now I'm returning it to the seller until the 2nd fascinate comes in. Also, the root guide for the fascinate is a little more abstract than the Droid so until I find a guide I can understand I'm gonna wait on rooting.
