Talking Email/Phone Bomb VZW for unlocked bootloader

Your voice is not heard unless you speak!

Below is the contact information for the top executives at Verizon Wireless. I encourage all of you to contact them through all channels of communication. However remember we are not after angry mob justice-- civility, manners, and proper English will be your most effective tools. I would recommend something along the lines of;

"Dear X, I am dissatisfied with Verizon Wireless's decision to lock down the bootloader of the Galaxy S5. I understand this is done for security but if I if I wish to have my bootloader unlocked it should be granted upon request. I will knowingly and gladly void my warranty in exchange for an unlocked bootloader. This will be the last device I purchase through Verizon Wireless and I am spreading the word for other customers to do the same."

It is lonely at the top, I'm sure they wouldn't mind daily emails and phone calls from all of you!

Contact Information

Well, this just makes us all look like meanies (mod edit).

Anyways, they unlocked the bootloader for you already.

You purchased the wrong version if your bootloader is locked.

Yeah two things we are not going to do here:

a) post phone numbers for individuals
b) advocate an illegal act (Email bombing)

thread closed.
I'm taking a break of an undetermined length. Please don't contact me about exploits
