T-Mobile checks for water damage with those stickers under the battery cover. They make sure the phone powers up and that the screen is not cracked and the touch screen works. That is ALL T-Mobile cares about and will check when trading in a phone.
When i came over from VZW and they paid my ETF for doing so they took my Bionic in trade (I kept my S4 to sell) it was somehow currupt and i told them hold on, i have a custom ROM installed let me restore the backup. They took the Bionic with CM 10.1 installed. They only need it to boot up with screen not cracked and working. She told me that's all they are instructed to check and nothing else matters.
What was funny she asked me about rooting and custom ROMs and the next week i went over to her place and set up her note 3 with a custom ROM. Last time i ran into her she told me she's a flashoholic now.
