    It might cause death ! LOL. Wait didn't they or vzw stated only the minority of people want to unlock their phone? If that's the case how can the site be hammered? ;)

    I remember Hashcodes found the qe process in ICS that reports to Motorola a device's software configuration, maybe they can use that to track who is unlocked. Also on ICS for the D4 they have a Remote Diagnostics program by Verizon, maybe that could aslo be used to scan your system too.

    So can it be confirmed that the Bionic can not be unlocked under any circumstances?

    It makes no sense that devices prior to 8/2012 are not supported because the XOOM was released way before then.

    Guys this is the first day. Give it time. When htc announced their tool it was for sprint devices at first. Eventually vzw devices started popping up on the site. So lets breathe and allow the process to play out. If it dont get unlocked then you can A) complain to vzw B) don't buy vzw moto devices until they are unlockable c) both

    The Xoom was released with an unlockable bootloader though. Fastboot oem unlock takes care of it just fine.

    Well I guess we will be seeing rather soon seeing as the S3 just got cracked. If anyone's service gets terminated because of it we will know Big Red is serious

    Bummer that the Droid 4 isn't supported. :disappointed:

    Didn't Verizon allow the Droid 1 on their network? That phone's BL was never locked. I may just have to switch to the Photo Q 4G LTE, that phone has a lot of the features I was hoping the D4 would have like NFC.

    Indeed. I'm hopeful this will be enough for devs to come up with some easy-to-use tools for all Moto devices.
