Nope, rooting the phone does nothing to your data. if you install a new rom then you have to reinstall all your apps and data. all rooting does it open up the [root] area of the phone, so apps can have more control of it. it's like having admin privilages on a work PC, instead of the crippled idi...

I think she'd be fine as long as she doesn't stream shows through her phone to her pc. if she just uses it to surf the web or download things for class there's no way she'd ever get high enough data usage for sprint to care. (I have sprint and the GS3)

Get the 50". You won't regret going larger.
Now the other thing you mentioned about the sofa not directly facing the tv could be a reason to go plasma. The plasma won't have off-axis color distortion like a LCD tv will (and yes LED is still LCD. there are no pure LED tv's yet in your price ran...

it's a good tv.
the reason it's cheap is it doesn't have any internet apps. it's a "dumb" tv. it's still a good tv.
I wouldn't worry about the lack of HDMI inputs. I use one on my tv b/c i have a receiver that does the switching for me....

There is no simple box that will do what you need and pass through the locals in HD. you have a couple of options.
1) repair the tv yourself. good luck.
2) get a cable box from cox. downside you have to pay rental fee.
3) can get a tuner for a pc then connect it to your tv. (my current setu...

You could always create another google voice account, then attach your sprint number to it as a "office number...
