    What's the point in locking aa bootloader and encrypting it? Why would they do that

    Restricts the phone owner's hacking. It makes it harder to do things like root, flash ROMs, etc.

    Try being a RAZR owner... Having a phone with a non removable battery that gets a successor (which is the exact same phone but with a huge battery) what? 2 months after the razr?

    I love motorola but, that really pisses me off.

    Verizon and probably Moto claims they are protecting the consumer because hacking the phone could disrupt service or damage the device. Then they don't want to replace it bc it's damaged. I filed an FCC complaint against them regarding locking the bootloader and that's the mumbo jumbo response they gave me.

    Moto can pump a phone out every week for all I care...I do expect them to provide support for ALL their phones for a reasonable amount of time. My d2g is already "obsolete". Dang thing is less than 1 year-old.... There's still a few bugs from an OTA gingerbread update that haven't been fixed yet (read the forums from around october). I love this phone and wouldn't "trade-up" at this time (unless they gave me rzr maxx free :)
    Just wish they'd divert some attention to getting products "right", not just "new"

    No, because the Razr doesn't have a removable battery.
    Also I don't think it's the only difference. I don't think it's possible to essentially double the battery size on a phone while thickening it by just a little under 2 mm, without changing anything else. Look at the 3800 mAh extended battery for the Galaxy Nexus, that thing is huge - if they had only changed the battery on the Razr Maxx, that's how it'd look too.

    I will probably never buy another Motorola phone. Ever. who knows but every where on the internet suggests that Moto is fine with unlocked bootloaders but Verizon says no. Now before anyone questions why the GNex could be unlocked on Verizon,

    They care because lots of people brick their phones by rooting and installing custom ROM's, then return it because they claim it's defective.
