Bootloader Unlocking Z3

2018-11-24, 18:57 PM

I bought the flagship device, as historically I have been able to easily unlock my device and optimize/customize as I liked. 

I have taken the steps, knowing the potential consequences, to start the process. 

In the webform, I am notified that I am not able to unlock my bootloader.

Is there any reason for this? Is it something that just hasn't been rolled out yet, or is it something that is going to remain restricted?

I guess the main question is: Is there currently any way at all I can unlock my phone to achieve the level of operation I bought it for?

It's a Verizon phone. It's pretty well known that Big Red isn't keen on unlocked bootloaders. So I think likely you will never see it happen.
