Yep, one of the reasons why I didn't want the Optimus G either. I was actually thinking about getting one myself, back before I got my order in on Wednesday (which I got lucky and the phone shipped), but then I remembered, "So it's either getting another phone with similar specs, but a locked bootloader, bloatware, and no updates directly from Google (Carrier Updates, which suck, but of course, run custom roms), or get a phone that will be a lot cheaper, Google's ultimate flagship phone, direct vanilla updates, etc, but HAVE TO WAIT 1-3 months!??? Quite a hard decision, even for me, but if you're going to wait that long for a phone, by then, the Galaxy S4 will probably be out, and the Nexus 4 will probably be slightly outdated. Still a good phone though, just won't be the holy grail king of Android by then though.
