    Thanks for letting me know, I've got an LG G2 as well, on Verizon. Like the phone, hate verizon.

    Its Verizon, once you let it push that update then it locks the bootloader I'm sure. They did that with my S3. Seriously, it should be illegal to lock a bootloader.. I blame Apple.

    You considered loading a custom Rom until you get in to big red?

    Same here. Love the phone, Verizon irritates me as much as Comcast. Unfortunately both have the best network setups, so they have you by the balls really. Plus on my family plan and work discount it's relatively affordable (unlike Comcast).

    Going to Verizon this morning. What a load of hoohaa.

    Well, good thing is a SIM card swap and hard reset fixed it. Shouldn't have happened in the first place though.

    Hard reset as in they wiped the data partition? Did you at least back up everything before Idiota, the salesman who thinks he's a phone repair tech, did the factory reset?

    I don't expect Sony to bring anything to the table, especially in the US.

    http://www.technobuffalo.com/2015/02/20/why-sony-is-considering-exiting-the-smartphone-business/

    T-Mobile already ended their partnership with Sony (again - it was the same story with Sony Ericsson - they just don't sell) http://www.cnet.com/news/t-mobile-stops-selling-xperia-z3-in-latest-sony-setback/

    Competition is always good but Sony just can't get their act together.

    I just don't understand WHY they can't compete in the US market. Their recent products got very good reviews (especially the Z3 Compact) and they have good name recognition. Doesn't seem like a recipe for disaster to me.
