I believe the FCC stated that Verizon must, as part of the 700Mhz spectrum auction, let any compatible device onto the network. If you buy a device from Verizon it can be locked down, but Verizon can NOT prevent a device with or without a locked bootloader or any other compatible device from being used or activated on the 700Mhz network - provided the customer passes credit checks and other things like that.
