Default Re: The "Epic" Motorola X Pre-Release Thread

I actually think it's very plausible that VZW will tack on the fee. Because it's not about money. What if google told all carriers, the phone will be unlockable on your network, or you won't get it. So VZW lawyers look at the agreement and decide, they do have to offer a way to unlock it, but it doesn't have to be free. So they assign a number that when compared to what you get is exorbitant, in order to prevent as many people as possible from taking advantage of it. End result, for the most part, business as usual, with an extra $200 per year from the die hard few.
