    Just from an outsider's view, looks like they recognize there's a new player in the game. If you think of it as some kinda barter, Google/Moto laid out their stance, now VZW prepares theirs and through various negotiations, eventually a deal is done.

    Formerly VZW displayed NO interest in un-locking anything...looks like they now see they're gonna have too fall back from that stance.

    A good sign for us consumers, yes?
    I agree. I have a feeling that GooMoto is in no mood for counters at this point....... Wouldn't surprise me if this ended in a creation of a GooMobile or GooWireless.

    Am I the only one who keeps seeing the Pointy Haired Boss from Dilbert every time I hear about VZW and these ridiculous counter proposals?

    If things come to blows, hopefully Samsung would also follow suit.. if they did it would be a nice horse-kick in the pills for VZW.

    "The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?"

    Don't worry. I won't. I'll simply switch carriers to one that's a bit more useful and consumer friendly. I hear Russian carriers allow more flexibility than VZW...

    Amen. I actually wonder why it takes so long for a soak/ota. I'd think something like that at a company that big would have a system that automates the whole process of release (copying to release servers, setting up the waves of updates (who gets it when), etc) and it would be done in a day or two.
