Default [Q] rooted android device

If i have a rooted phone and install say ubuntu would i still be able to use it as a phone? i have been considering installing a different flavor of linux on my phone for a long time but that question has always stopped me. Now why i haven't asked till now is beyond me honestly but i would really like to hear input from someone that has install a new OS on there phone.

Hi, it depends on which model your phone is, and what custom OS you want to install.. for Ubuntu Phone, for example, you can check the development status for various device at this page..
If your device is listed there, click on the status link and there you can see which parts of the OS work and which don't , there is also a Phone/cellular section.
If your device is not listed, it means tha Ubuntu Phone cannot be installed at all.
