    Because we need somewhere to complain that the Z is not going to be fully unlocked like the X Pure/Style. I don't want Verizon's crapware and need a forum to properly whine in :mad: :rolleyes::D

    Don't get the carrier version, buy an unlocked one. Bare in mind it will be full retail price rather than subsidized by the carrier.

    No, that's the thing. The unlocked X had radios for every carrier in the US, I have one on Verizon with no bloat, pretty much straight up vanilla Android. The Z will be Verizon branded (bloated) or unlocked for GSM only. I refuse to play the branded/bloat game but the pickings are slim. That's why I love the X, it is Verizon-bandwidth happy. UGH. Stupid Lenovotorla.

    Motorola (Lenovo) in the US now have an exclusivity agreement with Verizon?

    AFAIK the Moto Z in China will any carrier.

    Yup. The Z and Z-Force here will initially only be available on Verizon and Droid branded. Then other carriers will get the Z later BUT they will be GSM only, there will be NO version of the unlocked phone to run on Verizon. A huge step backwards. Huge.
