I've heard bad things about Verizon doing things to their phones, do you not have a third party retailer in the states? I know that in the UK most people, especially people who want to modify their handsets, will buy from Carphone warehouse or even phones 4 u. You basically end up with the international unlocked version of the handset, as it was intended. I made the mistake of getting my Z1 from EE, turned out that the bootloader couldn't be unlocked no matter what I did, so I bricked it and sent it off for repair through Carphone, got a fully unlocked brand new handset back in five days.

There are several carriers, verizon and AT&T being the worst. Sadly verizon will never again have a nexus device available which is completely stupid on there part because they are losing a lot of customers.

Any chance of buying an international version of a phone that you might like.

Don't even bother with Verizon anything, avoid big red at all costs

Chances are you won't be able to run it anyway, as you're rooted, just either remove it in titanium, or freeze it, or rename the update apk by putting a .bak on the end of the file name and the odex file too.

Thanks for direct answer! I support your point of view on the topic! Why bother if one so upset. Either answer or ignore. Threads will be way shorter and meaningful.

True And I have no idea And you're welcome, I wasn't 100% on the Verizon thing, I only knew what I'd tried myself, I was rooted and updates didn't work for me, maybe a mistake to assume it'd be the same for you, perhaps if it's going to be a huge difference there should be different sections ?

I dunno?
