    I don't get why the locked boot loader is such a big deal. I mean unless you buy a phone out right I don't think it should be a issue. Its like complaining about not being able to tune/add bells and whistles to a car you leased vs a car you bought.
    we will drive after a couple beers an NOT make a federal case out of it

    Current Phone: Galaxy Note 3 (Stock Locked Bootloader Android 4.3 Jellybean)
    Retired Phone: Original Droid (Rooted and RunningCyanogenmod 7)

    To 99.9% of the people who buy it they won't care.

    To the other .01 who actually mod their phones they will care.

    One problem with your analogy...you aren't leasing a phone. Even if you buy it at upgrade price it is still your phone. Locking the boot loader is simply telling users that it is, in fact, not your device and you are not free to do with it as you please.

    To use your analogy (correctly), it would be like buying a car and then not being able to make modifications to it.

    Droid Bionic
    #50
    My bionic just got cracked semi bad and im going to get either the s3 or the nexus on verizon. I think i'm leaning towards the nexus as it will even get android 5.0 im sure. Not sure if i would get it for $150 on a new contract (and lose unlimited data) or get it for $250 from craigslist with some accessories.
