Default Rooting & Knox question

To start off, I know that rooting will trip the Knox counter (as of now) thus voiding my Samsung warranty.

What I would like to know is if this really matters, since I pay for insurance through my carrier (MetroPCS) any issues I have can be solved that way. Yes there would be a deductible but I wouldn't mind that so much as I would like having a rooted s5.

Thanks in advance for your time

tbh most insurance companies look for any way out of paying claims no way to know till you try to claim unless we have an assessor as an xda member who can shed more light on the subject.

Yeah I think they might be checking, we just don't have much information on it. Users never report back. If I'm you I wouldn't root just yet, might make your insurance monthly payment null
