    I did not start this topic. It is all over XDA-Developers and I am just reposting it here so that it can be seen by more Motorola device owners.

    OPERATION: Make Ourselves Heard

    (#OPMOSH)

    DISCLAIMER:
    We here, in the movement of #OPMOSH do not consider this spam, we do not consider this slandering Moto, we simply use this as a method of having our concerns heard. Motorola Mobility Inc. has been a powerful company that has been around for a very long time, and one we hope to see long in the future as well, before and after the Google buyout. That being said...


    About this movement:
    Motorola Mobility Inc. has become famous for its lies, slanderous ways, and tendency to flat out prove time and time again that it cares not for its customers after they walk out of that store with their Motorola-branded device. Since the early days of Android, post Droid 1, we have sat down and took our locked bootloaders like a man. There came to be a boiling point - and a full-out war was launched on their social media sites. Sound familiar? The same thing that worked with HTC and now with Asus. We received a generic "second half of 2011" timing. Guess what! It's now Q1 2012, and not only have they missed their deadline, but they have IGNORED all bootloader-related questions, given NOofficial announcement of their plans still being in motion, and thus must have forgotten that we are a core, dedicated community that wishes nothing more than to enjoy the phones we were given. Let's make ourselves heard yet again, turn the heat up, and make Moto (like HTC) get off of their asses and DO SOMETHING. Everyone counts!



    So....What can I do?

    NEW! TRY AN FCC COMPLAINT:
    FCC Consumer Complaints
    Select Wireless Telephone > Billing, Service, Privacy, Number Portability and other issues > Online Form. Fill out your information, scroll down, fill out 1 and 2, skip 3 and 4. Then in 5:

    - Tell the FCC that your phone’s bootloader was sold to you locked, preventing the regulatory requirement of BLOCK C Devices (MAKE SURE TO MENTION BLOCK C!!!) that "Consumers should be able to download and utilize any software applications, content, or services they desire" - make sure to cite that.

    - Also helpful would be dispelling the "Reasonable network management" exclusion. Tell the FCC that Verizon allows tethering of unauthorized devices to 4G LTE services through their mobile hotspots and their paid phone tethering functionality as-is, ones that are more bandwidth-hungry and also permit installing custom operating systems, and have a potential of doing significantly more damage, such as laptops.

    If you don't want to write yours up manually, we will have a pre-made step 5 that you can just copy paste soon, hopefully.

    TRY EMAILING:
    TO: sanjay.jha@motorola.com, marshall.brown@motorola.com, john.bucher@motorola.com, bill.ogle@motorola.com, john.cipolla@motorola.com, fei.liu@motorola.com, alain.mutricy@motorola.com,dave.rothschild@motorola.com, juergen.stark@motorola.com, jim.wicks@motorola.com

    To Whom It May Concern,

    The independent communities that you catered to with your announcement earlier last year are very very excited for your bootloader unlock solution. However, the "second half" of 2011 has come and gone quietly; why is it that the public has received no notice that the bootloader unlock solution is still in works? A small-scale petition has made its rounds about the Android community, and has already gained over 1,500 signatures just under 48 hours after being made public: http://www.change.org/petitions/moto...-bootloaders-2

    Clearly, the demand is indeed still quite strong (as can be seen on your social media networks, Facebook and Twitter), and it would be quite reassuring to the communities that not only pay for your devices every upgrade opportunity, but also help develop the Android operating system that you are using on the aforementioned devices, to have an announcement that the bootloader unlock/relock solution is still on track for a timely release. This would also potentially double as reassurance to on-the-fence Galaxy Nexus/HTC smartphone buyers to go with the Motorola Droid RAZR, with its KEVLAR backing, Verizon 4G LTE speed, powerful 1.2 GHz dual core processor, and new bootloader unlock/relock solution instead. Thank you for your time, and I look forward to your response.

    Sincerely,
    A Motorola Mobility Entusiast.

    TRY TWEETING:
    @Motorola - How about those unlocked bootloaders you promised second half of 2011? @HTC cares, do you? Ice cream and bootloaders and Motorola

    TRY POSTING ON THEIR FACEBOOK WALL:
    @Motorola - I'm a faithful Motorola customer, and I'm starting to have second thoughts. Honor what Android stands for, openness, and give us the bootloader unlock tool that you promised "second-half of 2011". [URL="http://moto.ly/icsboot"]Ice cream and bootloaders and Motorola[/URL] #OPMOSH

    [SIZE=5][B]MAKE SURE TO SIGN THE PETITION AS WELL:[/B][/SIZE][B]
    [URL="http://www.change.org/petitions/motorola-mobility-inc-unlock-all-smartphone-bootloaders-2#"]This is included in the email, so it is crucial that it continues to grow in number.[/URL]

    We NEED to be heard to get anywhere. Spread the word to your Facebook friends, your Twitter friends, your Google Talk friends, your favorite Android news site... Spread the word! Bring freedom to the Android ecosystem, like Andy Rubin and Rich Miner intended.
    Thank you SO much for your support. This community is amazing and I know our endeavors will be successful. See you on Moto's Facebook![/B]
