unfortunately,thats typical of vzw. they have an extremely fast,reliable network with excellent coverage,even in the middle of nowhere. if you find yourself "off the grid" and away from cities,theyre for you.
however,they are slow with new releases,and slow with updates due to the complexity of their LTE network and the integration of their apps into the OS. they dont allow unlockable bootloaders if they can help it. everything out since the rezound has been the same in that it works for the first lucky few to unlock on release day and then the option disapears.
inc 4g and dna at first were easily unlocked by changing CID,but that is now just as well protected as the radio secure flag.
looks like some exploits are still working,so keep fingers crossed for something to change CID and/or radio secure flag is released. it would be a shame for vzw users to not be able to experience what the rest of us have with this wonderful device!
