There is a thread to change back to locked. My advice is to leave s off. Turning s on is a can of worms you may not want to open,and not needed for warranty.

It's especially dangerous with vzw and may leave you with an unusable phone.

Won't Verizon refuse a return if they find the phone with an unlocked bootloader?

That's my concern...I'm back to stock recovery and stock Rom, but I still show unlocked and s-off in boot loader and (reasons aside) I need to return the phone.

...?

I didn't say to leave an unlocked bootloader. I said to leave s off.
