    Couple basic questions for you guys:

    1. I rooted my phone. I didn't install any ROMs or anything. I just wanted to get rid of the bloatware and such so it wouldn't take up space, etc. How do I unroot it incase I have to send it in? Would this also require me to lock the bootloader, and if so, how do I do this?

    2. Since I deleted apps and a couple of other things, how do I make it go back to "stock" where as I would have those deleted apps and such back onto the phone? If I deleted the apps, and unrooted my phone, would they look at it and see I deleted them and not fix my phone?

    3. Apart from those questions, overall.. How do I make my phone "out of box" again, and then unroot the phone and lock the bootloader?

    Thanks, and this may sound dumb.. but if you install a ROM and send it in, would they be looking for that?

    nope... i mean, if you have time to go back to stock, do it... but most people just send it in rooted/romed with no trouble from vm

    No they are so lazy they never check. All they do is flash it to 100 percent original. They do hardware checks though to see if it's fraud.
