    While I hope it is true I find it hard to believe that the FCC would move this fast. This would take months and months of lawyers and investigation. On the other hand, that poster over there has 1800 posts. I also find it hard to believe that he would throw his rep out the window on that board by making it up.

    Sounds legit to me. I filed a claim for Vz regarding the 4g upgrade and the Xoom and i got a call back fairly quick. I work for the Government and every now and again we work

    Does anyone know the legality of an encrypted bootloader? It seems like if we are buying a device but don't receive full ownership of it, that that is breaking the law.

    The legality has something to do with this:

    Certain 4G phones use a special frequency spectrum, the believe it or not, Google owns the rights to, under their rights, these 4G phones using this spectrum (Block C I think its called) have to be fully unlocked.

    That's the short rundown, there's more, but I think that's the main point.

    So any 4G phone NOT in the spectrum, don't have to be unlocked, and there's nothing we can do about that.

    The only reason the community is gaining head way is because of some of these phones being in the special spectrum that by law under the open source license have to be unlocked.
