Yep exactly. I actually went through the same situation with asurion last month, and ended up getting a new 3d. Luckily, it was on old software, and thus had hboot 1.4, which is easily rootable with Revolutionary. Hopefully you will get the same, as hboot 1.5 isnt too hard to root, but a pain to flash new roms.
And btw, I love the 3d compared to the Evo.
