    Technically the carrier CAN refuse to service a unit whose OS is not on their approved list.

    I have futureshops PEP plan so they likely wouldn't check it, right?

    Very true. I think the OP should take into account that Rogers is pretty stingy
    with things like that. I've sent back a couple of phones to AT&T without getting
    crap about my OS though. I don't know if Rogers would do the same.

    Always remember OP that you can always downgrade back to the original OS.

    I have returned a Bold with .247 due to it crashing and did not have any issues with being charged back. Best thing to due it downgrade your OS to be safe and do ALT + LGLG to clear all event logs.

    i was told the same thing by my carrier. they sadi i have voided my warranty because my OS is not approved by them. but if you downgrade to a OS that is approved before taking it in they can't say anything. had a fight with a consultant today about this very issue.

    Safest and quickest thing I have done is do a JL commander wipe to remove everything

    A carrier may give you a hard time, but the warranty is for the hardware, and you would still be using an official RIM OS. RIM would honor the warranty. However, as mentioned above, it's easy to return to the original OS if you choose.
