As a former iPhone 3G owner, one of the main reasons I switched to Android was to be able to do whatever I wanted to my phone. I bought the X blind, not knowing about the drama with the bootloader.
I think I might return my phone. My alternative would basically be only the Incredible - EVO is sadly out since Sprint has zero service where I work. I'd consider the Nexus One but T-Mobile is spotty at work (OK at home). I like the Verizon network, I'm just nerd raging that I can't hack my phone and I hate Blur.
What do you think?
