    I've got a rooted Dinc, with CM7, been trying many different ROM's over the past year or so. Well I have an upgrade available, and my wife's phone died, and she's wanting me to upgrade so she can have mine. Just wondering if I need to downgrade to stock for when she get's it. I guess it really wouldn't matter, especially if she did it at the mall or something at one of those little kiosks or something. They probably wouldn't even know the difference right?

    just dial *228 or switch it online. you dont need to involve a store. leave it rooted and flash a stock based rom if she doesnt want to use cm7.

    No reason to unroot to upgrade. You just go in and tell them you want a new phone. Unless you want them to transfer your contacts or something they shouldn't need to touch your old phone. Then, just give your old inc to the wife. She just needs to call in, give them the ESN, and activate it on her line.
