    If you go to that page and look in the drop down list, the I535 isn't listed. Maybe it will be once it "officially" drops. Who knows?

    :mad: Grrrr..., Verizon angers me so sometimes. I feel like they have no idea about the devices they sell and the community they sell them to. Purely big brother crap. I wouldn't be surprised to find out that verizon has some underground deal with apple somewhere to keep android from operating to their fullest potential as it was intended.

    Yeah this pretty much does it for me. I have the pre-order coming in on Monday, but I'm not even going to open it. I'm just going to bring it back to Verizon. I know we can flash through things like bootstrap, but it shouldn't have to be that way. I shouldn't have to settle for that- especially for the last upgrade I'll ever use through Verizon. I've really and truly had it. I'm going GSM pre-paid. I'm sure I'll be happy as a clam with the next iteration of the Nexus, and I won't have to worry about Verizon's bs waiting for my phone to get it's next upgrade. Carriers can go shove it. :icon_ lala:

    I am done with Verizon. Once I see a price drop on a phone I want to sub $500 I will be moving to T-mobile and getting that $30 a month unlimited everything(5GB a month 4g speeds), calls via voip and what not.

    Yeah moto took a lot of heat for being the only ones not that I dont think moto is embracing it but the heat now shifts from moto to vzw.

    Vzw has been working on transitioning more to locked bootloaders. Because of all the backlashed they slowed down until they could give us a nexus. A few years ago vzw said they would release one unlocked device a year (or 2 years cant remember) for those who want a device to develop on. With the vzw nexus now live they fulfilled their agreement so when a customer complain about the bootloader they can point to the nexus.

    Google did but vzw was willing to do that any way so they can calm down the heat they got from the moto locked bootloaders.

    I'm 100% with you on this. I have five lines on Verizon and was thinking about pulling the trigger and upgrading two of them to the SGIII but after this news I'm moving my lines one at a time to a different carrier.

    I know root and recovery have been reached but I'm not dealing with a locked bootloader. The last Moto phone I had was the OG Droid and I won't buy another because of the bootloader.

    I will be watching how this plays out. If the Dev's can unlock the bootloader I might stay but if not, it's bye bye Verizon for me.

    I think I will be right behind you. After doing some reading on this, I realized that a ton of money can be saved. Not to mention battery life!
