Yes everyone re-tweet this... Maybe being vulgar like some on the FB page isnt the answer.. Catch more flies with sugar than vinegar...Paul asks a good question. If you have twitter, just click that link and then hit re-tweet to your followers button..

Oh and all of who are new to ATT as of this week arent familiar with the VIVID deal.. Could someone please explain what happened with that? thanks and RE TWEET http://twitter.com/#!/PaulOBrien/sta...11794947203072

This was posted on Android Central less than an hr ago. Not sure how recent the statement actually is but... doesn't look good for the foreseeable future.

This might be my reason to NOT order one for a while..

This is essentially a copy of The Verge's article. I'm glad they covered it too though

Aah okay, wasn't completely sure, seems all the online sources talking about this are getting the canned reply.

I really want on of these but, don't want to use the 30 day return period in hopes of this getting settled and then finding out it might be 6 months or longer if at all.

Guess the wait is on..

Retweeted the heck out of that article. I guess I may just keep rocking my unlocked nexus. I was actually all ready to return it before this whole locked boot loader thing came along

I was interested in getting this phone until I read this. Not anymore. So tell me AT&T, do you want my business or not? Your call.

What's a few days to see if it gets unlocked? If it does, then....

Thumbs down american carriers downright BLOW

i will say the only two good parts are:
a. theres so many really smart guys on these forums that get really creative with this kind of thing
b. theres a 30-day return with AT&T
ill pick it up tomorrow, as planned, and if it turns out no one has figured out a solution in the next month i can return it for an SGSII. definitely not cool on ATT's part, but not the end of the world either.

also- when i pick up the phone at the AT&T store ill make a stink about it, but lets take it easy on the ATT reps theyre not the ones callin the shots.
..my HTC One and Nexus 7 are as far from stock as the bleeding edge will take me.
