Default Re: Will this have a locked bootloader on Verizon?

Verizon hasn't released a phone since the Gnex that didn't have an encrypted bootloader. Some have been unlocked via unlock tools, had leaks that lead to unlocks, or been cracked; but all have been initially encrypted. No doubt Adam Outler will probably take up the fight to unlock the Verizon S4 because he seems to enjoy sticking it to Verizon by cracking their bootloaders.
