Default Motorola Bootloader Unlock

Hey guys,

I paid 1.69 for an eBay unlock code which was accepted by my (Tesco) Moto G 8GB.

I've saw over at the Motorola site about unlocking the boot-loader and want to know if this also removes carrier lock ?

1. Has the eBay seller given my IMEI to Motorola and already invalidated my warranty ?
2. Have I lost the benefit of Motorola services already ?
3. Has the eBay seller registered himself, with Motorola, as the owner of my device ?

Uhhh... what?

Carrier unlocking and bootloader unlocking are 2 completely different things. If you carrier unlocked, your warranty is still valid. The seller of the code is not affiliated with Motorola. Nobody can unlock your bootloader without access to your device.
