    are you in fastboot mode and do you have the recovery file in the same directory as fastboot and are you running "fastboot flash recovery [nameoffile.img]"?

This could be caused by several factors including simple errors in the entry of the unlock token, problems with your device, or a lack of manufacturer support for the unlocking process. Please see the specific error code listed below, andtry again if necessary.
    Error Code: Invalid Bootloader Token Length.
    Error Reason: The submitted Token appears to be the wrong length and won\'t work.

    Ok I followed the steps perfectly and unlocked my phone but have lost my signal and 3g/4g connection. I can't use the internet to download Amon-recovery to my phone for full root. What did i do wrong?

    While I'm sure you can bring the Rezound over to another CDMA carrier. You can't use this as if it were a GSM phone(although it does have GSM hardware). The unlocking process here is for unlocking the bootloader, not unlocking in the sense that you can bring the phone to another carrier. The only SIM card in the phone is the 4G LTE sim.

    So can anyone tell me how to re-lock the bootloader? I'm trying to RUU the phone and it's giving me an error. I read that I have to lock the bootloader in order to do this. Thanks!

    when in fastboot USB mode, run the command "fastboot oem lock" this will lock the device for you.

    What command are you typing? It should be "fastboot flash unlocktoken unlock_token.bin" where unlock_token.bin is the path and name of your unlock_token.bin

    make sure you are using an underscore "_" and not a hyphen "-" that will make all the difference.
