~I CAN SHOW YOU A SCREEN SHOT SAYING (BOOT-LOADER UNLOCK ALLOWED-YES) BUT THAT FOES NOT PROVE NOTHING SO ITS EITHER YOU TRY IT FOR YOURSELF OR JUST WAIT UNTIL A DEV COMES OUT WITH ANOTHER METHORD.
I can Google for a screenshot too, but I'm not going to do that. I do have a LT26i, and for me, (and a couple of other users on the forum) it still says No. I'd bet if it could change to Yes so easily then we'd have a couple of threads explaining this method instead of a couple of threads bitching how they can't unlock the bootloader.
Maybe you're telling the truth, maybe with the way your carrier crippled the phone it allows for Bootloader unlocks. But for now, the majority of people are saying it doesn't do it.
