    Default Need to Lock bootloader and return to Verizon

    Hope for some help, I rooted and unlocked with stock. My phone took the OTA 2 weeks ago while I was away.
    Long story short my bootup screen shows unlock symbol and custom.
    Verzson is sending me a new phone due to hardware issues and I need to lock the bootloader.
    EZ Unlock? No longer availabe.
    Thanks for everyones help with all you do

    you didnt need a new ph.. you just needed to go to

    "http://techngeek.tumblr.com/post/34829408088/restore-your-verizon-samsung-galaxy-s3-to-stock"
    ,
    that would bring yer phone up just as it came outta the box ..well with all the nickle n dime updates then search for an OTA "if ya want it" it will update to 4.1.2
    factory.. I've thought about re-rooting but as yet have not seen anything i was comfortable with that rooted the 4.1.2 .. I've already been down brick lane and dont wanna make another trip there.
