Okay so here is my issue. My thunderbolt has the worse 4G LTE signal.. I live in Chicago and I know there signal is good but not this phone. Im constantly having to restart so I can get my 4G LTE coverage. So I wanna go to Verizon and have them send me a replacement but I wanna know is it worth going through the touble of unrooting the device, do they care. Has anyone sent in a rooted device to Verizon and had any problems?

I want to get a replacement so I can sell it as soon as verizon releases a better phone but at this point I think any phone would be a better replacement then this one. Im using the Thunderstick ROM and I'm not in love with it at all but none of these ROMs have seemed solid to me. I dunno hopefully someone can help me out.

If you're returning it to Verizon, absolutely unroot. It's not hard, you literally just flash two different files in hboot. Hardly a nuisance. There should be a sticky in the development forum on what to do.

Gingeritis V1.2.1 is actually snappier and more stable IMO. It's straight Sense 2.1 though, no 3.0 elements like G3D.

Sounds like the issue isn't the ROM, it's the phone and the signal. I would absolutely unroot. I wouldn't risk paying the $500 or so for a new phone because you "voided your warranty."

Like everyone else said, unroot. There is a high chance that they won't take it back rooted. So unless you want to be stuck with the phone, unroot.

First try to flash a new radio, then sim card, then unroot back to stock (ROM, and Radio) see if it works then, if not send it back (unrooted)

I would try this first. ^
I also had a VERY strange issue with data ... this past Friday I just lost it - no 3G, no 4G but calls and texts worked fine (as did wifi). I tried everything from flashing radios to wiping and flashing several ROMs and nothing got my data back. Called VZW support and they did not resolve it. The next morning I went to VZW and said the tech on the phone recommended a new Sim card (yeah so it was a little white lie) swapped it out and nothing still. At this point I figured it was time to unroot and bring my phone into the store. I downloaded the 2 files in jcases's unroot thread and flashed the stock un rooted RUU in hboot. Rebooted and data was working!!! So I proceeded to sign in and test my connection and it was working well. So, being I didn't flash the stock bootloader RUU I was sill s-off ... I flashed the rooted RUU from the root thread to obtain root again and everything has been fine since!
Sorry for the long post, but maybe doing this will help you. I am not sure why I lost data like that or why flashing the unrooted RUU worked, but it was like an enima for my phone ;-)
Good luck!
