    OK czerdrill its my turn to play devil's advocate. I will believe it when I see it. And Vzw has to approve it. Now I would not be surprised if that is the case after they release the tier data plan and Vzw decides to only allow future moto devices unlocked so users have to sign up for the tier data plan. This will combat their biggest concerns which is the use of free tethering apps.

    oh i agree with you. i'm surprised so many companies are making these statements, but it definitely is up to the carrier and not the OEMs whether the devices are approved for the network. I personally would be surprised if VZW allows something like this.

    I think they will allow it on their terms. They have to be sure that at any time you can restore it to stock. See though apple locks down their iPhone they ensure that it can be restored via iTunes. So I may jailbreak and do what I want and to restore it is as simple as plugging it into iTunes. Now people may say "we have that with motorola and HTC" to which I say no we don't. I use rsdlite and I can attest to it can be a doozie making sure you have the right drivers....and that is what snags many users. I think carriers going to want something in place where users can return to stock at any time... basically what apple has with iTunes. Because though they now have handled free tethering they don't want to give a green light to brick city.

    Didn't Verizon say that devices with unlocked bootloaders could be activated on their network?

    They'll provide the unlockable/lockable bootloaders just in time for tiered data and THIS to become more common - which is fine by me, personally. Also this:

    TeamAndIRC ✔ jcase
    @P3Droid verizon has a new return notice outlining new guidelines, both minor damage and root can result in a large bill
    "...life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it."
