Nope, this is actually my very first smartphone, unless the BB 8330 I had before it was considered a smartphone. I've been holding out for a worthy contender to the EVO, in comparison to when I purchase and what is the most cutting edge, since I'll be stuck with it for at least 2 years. Having it rooted, and even able to run the 4.2.2 SlimBean ROM, as well as ICS and other JB versions before it, certainly helped me hold out much longer.
Looking forward to how the One treats me. Although, I'm gonna try holding out on rooting it until someone figures out how to unlock the bootloader without it showing that it was unlocked before, if I need to unroot and relock. I've heard that AT&T doesn't allow unlocking the bootloader, so I'd hate to have a problem with my phone, unroot, relock, and take it in for diagnosis, only to be turned away because the bootloader shows a message that it had once been unlocked. Or I might unlock the official way if I discover that someone figures out a way to remove that message.
Sorry about this conversation leading somewhat off topic. I figured I'd post my concerns for deciding not to root immediately, just in case others have similar concerns. Also, someone might come across solutions that address these concerns and decide to share. Let me know if you'd rather the conversation continue elsewhere though.
