    Anyone know what happened to this? Verizon being jerks and delaying the release until the the S3 is ancient technology again like they did to the GNex? :-P

    I'm guessing Verizon has everything to do with the developer edition not being available from Samsung. The release of this device would pretty much confirm that Verizon's claim to have a locked down bootloader on the regular version of the GS3 is all about "network reliability and user experience".

    The GNex and all other post OG-Droid non-Motorola phones already completely negate their argument. Heck the Thunderbolt and Rezound are even unlockable via htcdev.com (no S-OFF though). Either way it's still all BS as locking the bootloader effectively stops nothing.

    And boom goes the dynamite http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=30274025. Verizon OFFICIALLY pwnt

    Verizon doesn't give a rat's azz about any petitions. Though the FCC complaints ppl have been filing gets their attention, because they have to cc their responses to the FCC. And after so many complaints, the FCC might actually start to take notice that something might be up and do a little investigating. The FCC already stuck Verizon with a small (to Verizon) fine recently.
