Okay i thought i would share this with you so last night i flashed latest RUU then i s-on not thinking tried running exploit it said it worked them booted into bootloader and locked it then i realized crap it never s-off i was still s-on so i was stuck in a big pickle. So i call HTC they said a dev expert will call your around 12 AM your time. So i get the call and i answered what's your problem so i explained then he has me get a unlock token from my device and email it to him. He goes okay so your locked s-on right i said yes on Verizon he told me he felt bad and was gonna help me out. So he sends me a new firmware and tells me to flash it so i flashed it in RUU mode and it past verification and installed firmware he changed my cid to super cid and had me unlock the phone via HTC Dev now i will not say who he is as i promised i do not want him losing his job but thank you very much very great full. I then asked why you do it that way can't you just get my unlock code on VZW_001 cid he said not without raising to much suspicion. If your wondering why he changed my cid.

Please comment if you've experienced similar situations.

What version of sense are you talking about 5.5 or 6.0
You're saying someone from HTCdev site unlocked your Verizon phone? How did you install firmware on a s-on bootloader locked device. Do we have a working bootstrapper i am not aware of?

I know congress just did something making phone unlocking legal again. Maybe that's why he helped you out.

That's in reference to carrier unlocking, not bootloader unlocking.

No I'm talking about bootloader not carrier I am now running cynaogenmod 11 and I was in sense 6 4.4.2 kitkat. They said the firmware was able to flash because he gave it HTC verification keys.
