    Seems that even thought the bootloader is locked its a non issue.. I maybe coming back to android. I left for iphone 4s bc of the battery life and massive bugs with the nexus and crap slow roms of the OG droid. and before that I had a droidX which I loved. Thoughts?

    so far i flashed 3 different roms (several times for each from due to updated versions) and have not tripped the flash count even once, but if you do I believe there is a way to reset the count. I havent heard of anyone losing their imei numbers yet from any of the forums i bounce between but i will be on the lookout.
