Default Need clarification regarding Droid X bands

It is Illegal for Verizon to Lock Some Bootloaders | xda-developers

verizon is technically breaking the law, have a good read, and let me know what you think.

Unfortunately the quoted "laws" are not in anyway broken by locked bootloaders or tiered data plans...

VZW is not removing any features of the RAZR...and they are certainly not denying anyone access to their data network...

To be honest to call the article a stretch would be putting it kindly...

They do keep me from using some features, like root file management, backup, etc.

however they can say things like that interfere with the security and integrity of their network. read Droid-Life's take on it.

Those are not advertized features of the device on any network...and they are not hardware functions of the phone that they are taking away

meta maybe you can clarify this,
this isnt verizon im speaking of

but at&t was preventing some users from accessing their full hspa+ before right? or was that t-mobile? i remember reading somewhere(*hah, i can read*) and that at&t or t-mobile, which i think is at&t was preventing full download speeds on their network by capping the hspa max download/upload speed. is this true? and wouldnt that be considered illegal if it was in block c?

or say if verizon was cappping the download/upload of the lte network through certain devices wouldnt that be considered the illegal part of the block c statement?

another point of this convo is where does the OG Droid come into play on this and the Xoom? neither of which has encrypted bootloaders? Also the G Nex will be without an encrypted bootloader.

My point is that even though i originally thought all this falls on VZW as well, I'm thinking now that it still may have a little to do with the manufacturer of the devices as well.
