Moto finally unlocking bootloaders enough to bring you back?

Posted Jul 26, 2012 at 7:02 pm in Threads > Opinions

So since it has been said that moto is going to issue an unlock to bootloaders if they start doing it with all their phones would it get you to switch back? I know a lot of people and sites bash moto for this very reason so maybe this would finally bring moto devices back to the level of the OG droid if they do it on all carriers( yes verizon I am looking right at you) I would very much consider moto again if they did this. great radios and build quality. http://www.droid-life.com/2012/07/26/motorola-finally-ready-to-unlock-bootloaders-starts-with-the-photon-q/

    Let me get this straight… you take something AWAY from us… and then much later give it BACK… and we are suppose to be happy that you gave us something special????

    Gee, thanks Moto.

      Maybe the Google buy out is actually putting a little influence on moto. Only time will tell though because we’ve heard this before from moto and they have yet to follow through.

    If they take away motoblur ui and replace it with stock Android then I’ll give them a try.

      The latest blur I don’t really have a problem with. Its not stock android but its about the closest to stock any OEMs went with skins. Stock would be a huge plus.

    This thing does GSM, CDMA, EvDo, and LTE but cannot let you change your SIM card…

    I doubt many Sprint users need GSM, rasing the cost of the phone for nothing. Moto should also sell this thing unlocked for those who want a high-end phone with a keyboard.

    motorola is still the only manufacturer with a high end qwerty phone. the Desire Z doesn’t even come close to the Droid 2, Droid 3, Droid 4 and now this

    and besides, I have the Droid 2, rooted with an AOKP room. Do we really have to worry about locked bootloaders?

  • Dr.Carpy

    As redraider133 and pjax so eloquently pointed out, Motorola is a quality manufacturer. LG, Meizu, HTC, etc. could learn something from Moto about a quality build. If the Motorola Q has a Razr Maxx battery life this phone will easily be picked up by those who still enjoy a physical keyboard. Here come the Blackberry dissidents!
