    I'm tethered right now with Foxfi. I am rooted, but was not prompted to give Foxfi root access.

    S3 if you can live with the (hopefully temporarily) locked bootloader.

    Based solely upon that chat? None whatsoever. 99% of the time, sales reps know nothing about any of this stuff. And those that claim to know something almost always read it online or were told the information by someone who read it online. The answers given by the sales rep in that chat seem to indicate that she doesn't know what's really being asked.

    Oh boy, I hate to admit it but this got me a little bit excited this morning. I only say "hate" because of the terrible record Verizon reps have of getting anything correct. I wonder if she may have been thinking of the dev phone from Samsung?

    Interesting. Where would such a thing be announced? I only see future updates to further lock down the phone. But I can't see into the future :happy3:

    Really guys? Come on, you know better than to put any faith in a Verizon rep. 9/10 times we know more than they do.

    Yep. And, as I mentioned, most of the reps that have any sort of idea about things typically get their information from forums like this one.

    Yeah, I signed the petition, as did many of my friends even those on other networks. Keeping fingers crossed.

    This is encouraging! However, weren't razr owners promised this as well? I'm not sure, I never had any interest in another Moto phone, so I never followed it.
