I won't own a phone without root. It's a personal computer, I paid for it, so I own it. If it's mine I should have admin powers. It is not mine, I won't pay for it. I buy to own, I don't rent. As for LG, they can go @#&* themselves, their continued attempts to steal my phone from me by depriving me of root and their choice to lock the bootloader have ensured I won't buy anything else they make from here on out.
