Good grief Verizon, not you too with anti-consumer policies!

AT&T does a lot of stupid things with data and their customers and I call them on it often. This IMHO is anti-consumer. I pay full price for my phones (unsubsidized) so I feel I should be allowed to do with it what I want like rooting, etc. I hope Verizon stays cool with customers still on grandfathered unlimited data or Im headed to Sprint. This is an anti-consumer move and a step in the wrong direction to want to mess with phones so they cant or would be more difficult to root. Bad move Verizon.

Sprint might not offer unlimited data for much longer either. Their network is running thin too.
And besides, it's not up to the carrier to assist with unlocking bootloaders. It's between the user and the device manufacturer. I recently unlocked the bootloader on my HTC Rezound phone using the instructions on the HTC web site. Then I rooted the phone but the left the stock operating system on it because the after-market ROMs currently out are not yet enough to convince me to flash. However, once I find the ROM that I find practical, I will flash it.
