I was just at best buy and was talking to one of the guys about rooting a phone. He told me there are websites where you can use a PC, connect it to my phone and it roots it for you via software. Is that true and does it actually work?

 

TIA

Yes it's true, and as much as I love Bleeping Computer you would be much better off asking about things like rooting Android phones, and the various exploits available and how to use them, on sites dedicated to Android such as xda-developers.com or androidforums.com.   Also a web search on your phone's make and model along with the search term "root" will generally return very specific information on how to root the device in question.
