Sometimes rooted phones are better than unrooted ones.
1. You have more control over the phone.
2. You can install apps that the provider doesn't like (which could be anything).
3. You can set the passwords to anything on the phone.
4. You can remove the excessive crap that the providers put on the phone.
As for "unrooted phones are more secure".. Bullcrap. You should call (or google) HTC and ask them what happened when an exploit nailed some of their popular phones.
