Update 5/8


HTC CEO and president Peter Chou promised that all HTC Android devices launched after September 2011 can have their bootloaders unlocked.

Currently this is not the case with the AT&T One X variant.

The only thing they respond to is bad PR and social media harassment. We're passionate about our phones and they should know it.

Twitter!

File a Better Business Bureau complaint
  • bbb.org
  • This takes only 5 minutes to complete and actually makes a difference.
Having wide exposure of this issue gets the attention of AT&T very quickly.

Awesome job guys! That was fast!



Every little bit helps. The more active we are the faster this will be resolved. I'll be bitching night and day until it's unlocked.

I will continue to support this movement, update this thread, pester AT&T, and will probably be back should the bootloader be unlocked when my girlfriend needs a phone.

Commented on their FB page. After hearing what AT&T's CEO said today about unlimited plans and iMessage, I really can't stand AT&T now.

Been commenting under "Robert Dole" on the facebook page since last night on everything.

I also have brought this to the attention of two editors (Myriam, Terrence) on Engadget directly via comments and podcasts chats on thier site. I also 'tipped' Engadget about it as well. Hopefully they will run a story on it.

EDIT: The more people that help, even just something as a simple post on att's FB page the better. Strength in numbers! Get everyone involved even if they don't have a One X!

I'm joining in as well. Just spammed their page a bit. E-mailed HTC on the matter and I've been looking up information all day.
