Should I have any problems with Asurion, if I trip KNOX? I know that I get a replacement before I send back my device. I just want to make sure that don't hit me some crazy charge, if they ever do find out. I might just bite the bullet and go root w/ tripping KNOX (already on 4.4.2).

If you're really worried, just throw your phone in a lake and open up a claim.

Knox applies to Sprint Warranty. Assurant is purchased insurance. Different ball of wax that Knox does not impact. You just can't take the phone to a Sprint repair center without paying for everything. All repair/replacement issues will have to go through Assurant instead.

Knox does not apply to sprint warranty. It applies to samsung. Sprint could care less. You are misinformed. As long as you flash stock firmware to diagnose issues your golden.

My point brother. Worse that happens tech flashes latest tar to your phone. At the most. Usually they just exchange

Then I was misinformed by the tech in the Sprint repair center. Your area may be different, but in the Milwaukee area the Sprint repair centers won't touch your phone if they can tell it's been rooted. You either go through asurion, pay full price for the repair, or buy a new phone. You are misinformed about whether Sprint cares. Your local tech might not, but the company does.

It's written in stone as a sprint policy if he refuses to touch it call corporate. Hes in violation of sprints policy. Your wrong sprint doesn't care it's your tech being a punk.
