Really starting to doubt this and I dont know if to return the phone or not. The main problem is the bootloader, will it be unlocked with official ICS update or not? Motorola as always does not come with information and kholk (awesome man) is working to unlock the bootloader but it takes time and I understand that, and we don't know in theory how it works or if it will work. anyone else in the same situation?

still haven't bought any case or screen protection. Also from what I understand there is few Motorola phones with unlocked bootloaders (Atrix, Milestone the only two?)

I think I will return the phone and buy it again if the bootloader get unlocked with the ICS update (or with kholk). You really can't sit and wait with a 750$ phone to get the bootloader unlocked..

I was in the same boat like you. I sold mine and bought an atrix. It's a pity to wait for motorola to unlock bootloader.

Just wondering how many people have problem with: The screen (very yellowish colour, is that true?), sim-card losing connection, headphone jack stop working etc. I can buy the Razr brand new for 615$ (without contract) is it worth? Previously owner of: SGS, ZTE Blade and HTC Desire Z. Horrible build quality on these phones imo. I know the Razr have pentile but does it really matther? My brother owns an SGS atm, I think SGS I9000 also have pentile but I never noticed it. Any suggestions? please feel free to comment
I have only had a issue with my headphone jack. I took it back and they gave me a new phone. But I have the Razr Maxx. I think the hardware is all the same though except for the battery of course. Sucks you can't get the maxx though. :/

Yes I decided to return it, it's a pity really because the build quality is one of the best i've seen. Maybe I'll buy one again if the bootloader gets unlocked and we see more roms. The only Motorola device I will own untill they unlock ALL the bootloaders for phones is the Xoom.
