Or you're in my shoes. You paid the big bucks for the locked bootloader version because the Dev version wasn't announced yet and I am not giving up my unlimited plan. Then you learn that people who came later and paid the same as you did get versions that can get their bootloaders unlocked, and you just ****ed yourself.
Thanks to the Chinese bootloader unlock code, I ended up winning in the end. However, I was just lucky that there was someone able to help me for $46, and I got in before the offer went away.
