@andrewwalberg I have confirmed we allow phones w/ unlocked bootloaders to be activated on our network. Sorry for the misinformation.
Where does it say that they'll be actively bringing phones to their lineup with unlocked bootloaders? Oh it doesn't. It say's you can activate a phone on their network if the bootloader is unlocked. It doesn't say they'll be debuting phones with unlocked bootloaders, or even so much as an un-encrypted/unsigned bootloader.
How one gets from permitting unlocked bootloaders to making a blanket statement that all devices should come with unlocked bootloaders because it's permitted is beyond me.
I hope mto gets a clue...
HTC has pledged to unlock from this point, Samsung has sent free phones to CyanogenMod devs and Sony has said they will put a site up to unlock phones. So for those who say we don't have any say, or that it is just gonna get worse with locked down phones I think they need to look at what is happening.. Other than Moto, which is usually their own worse enemy, most other top OEMs are going to open phones up more not lock them down more. So that is a win for us and a loss for moto... Just look at HTC, sales twice last years numbers for the same period... Obviously their strategy is working just fine!
