In a response to a formal complaint filed with the FCC, Verizon has shed some light on how they view locked bootloaders. The letter states that unlocked bootloaders would allow users to run software that could "negatively impact how the phone connects to the network" and "the wireless experience for other customers". Verizon stated that this is to "ensure that we provide the best solution for as many customers as possible" and that it's "a delicate balance for any company to manage the technology choices we make for our branded devices and the request of a few who may want a different experience".
What do you think of Verizon's stance on locked bootloaders? Let us know what you think.
