Verizon Says Locked Bootloaders Better for the Network
What they say and what they mean...
Allowing users unrestricted access to their phones operating system can jeopardize the security of their customers data and the reliability of the Verizon network if phones are compromised and used for a DDoS attack.
Which is TRUE.
What they did not say is:
Allowing unlocked bootloaders also allows customers to use their phones in a manner that prevents Verizon from collecting additional revenue (such as tethering fees) and discourages users from upgrading phones (and signing lucrative long-term contracts) based on the software features on a specific phone.
Which is also TRUE.
