I am somewhat new to the Android community, having bought my first device, a new Nexus 7 in August. I decided to try rooting it, which worked out great, until I accidently deleted the os off of it. ( thanks again to those of you who helped me fix this) I now have an AT&T LG G2, and I wish to root this as well. However, I have some concerns as far as my carrier's ability to charge me. Will AT&T know if I root my device? If it can, can AT&T do anything about it? I am worried especially about extra charges to my plan and/or the refusal of service (i.e. they kick me off of my data plan). Can anyone offer any insight to this? Do I have anything to fear?
Thank you for your help.
No, it is not illegal to root your Android phone or even jailbreak it if you have an iPhone.
Here is an article with the detailed info:
In terms of receiving service from your carrier arises that is a different story. I don’t have AT&T, I'm on Sprint but I think AT&T will much likely give you problems or refuse service from what I have heard. I don't know that for certain as I have never had At&T.
I don't see how you would aquire any additional charges unless you are either going over your data limit or break your phone and they find out your rooted so they don't fix it in which case you are stucjk buying a new phone at full retail.
That being said make sure you understand how to unroot so you are able to if you need to take the phone in for service.
Hope that helps.
