I think some of us knew it was “too good, to be true”. Does Verizon ever give freebies out to its customers? Hardly, almost ever. And this is one of those cases.
After much speculation as to whether or not the Verizon Galaxy S III would receive a software tool to unlock the bootloader, it will not be happening. And after all of the “sharades”, it seems like there was a misunderstanding with customer support. And no one hates this bogus material more than our good friend, David Pena.
When contacting customer support lines, of both Verizon Wireless and Samsung, representatives believed that the question being asked was “if the phone would be unlocked for GSM roaming support”. This is a big let down.
With the negative answer on the unecrypted bootloader, it looks like customers will be returning their devices, trading it in to buy the “developer edition”, or basically switching carriers. But, in no time developers will be cracking the bootloader, and giving us “customized dreams”.
What do you think of Big Red’s decision to destroy human-kind with this decision? Will you be switching carriers? I would love to hear your “rioting” comments.
