Bringing this over from our sister site GNF..figured the more the better...



Hey everyone!
Was on XDA and read about a topic that's pretty relevant to many of us: the ways in which Verizon are finding to stick it to all of us that actually wish to utilize our smartphones to full potential. Here's an except:

XDA POST



Verizon's Bootloader is either Locked, encrypted etc... for the Samsung Galaxy S3

It may get unlocked Unofficially in the near future. Do not be satisfied wth this.

We need it Officially Unlocked by Verizon.

Here is a prime example of why we want it Official

Hello guys.

I started contacting Engadget who will probably run a story about this Verizon-specific bootloader lock on Galaxy S III.

I want this bootloader change to be reverted, it's a huge mistake Verizon makes here.
Also, clearly I suggest to anyone here returning their device, get your money back, switch of carrier if needed and buy something else instead.

If anyone is wondering, I won't publish any apps (like planned Display Expert) on this Verizon device because even if eventually an unlocking method or workaround is found, it's likely it will be broken by future firmwares updates.

It means there's a too high risk users or buyers of my root apps will be unable to use it at some point, being disappointed and frustrated, sorry pals.

And I got in the loop Anandtech as well. No promises but there will be coverage.


The only thing we can do at this point is protest this any way we can.

I am asking each and everyone of you on Verizon or any other Carrier to Sign below.

I am also asking that anyone with any access to news sites, Verizon on Twitter, Facebook, etc... or knows anyone that does... call them out. Blow up there Twitter accounts.

Anything you can do to help the cause

We need to do this on a massive scale and force them to Officially unlock the boot loader.

THE KEY IS BAD PRESS FOR VERIZON

This is bad form when all other carriers gave it unlocked. "Network management" my butt...

Why you guys need Version, if they released locked bootloader, get the S3 from another mobile network.

Grandfathered to unlimited data plans...

Was thinking about switching carriers cause of the unlimited data not being grandfathered issue, now this happens, so they sealed their fate with losing me as a customer when my contract ends soon.
