Total speculation at this point, I doubt I will have one of these in my hands until next year because of finances . . . .

Just checking . . . . .
teddyearp,

Well, the bootloader comes locked and you still have to manually unlock it with the "fastboot oem unlock" command. So, the phone is locked but is unlockable.

Does that make sense?

Cheers!
