Moto Z2 Force - Unlock Bootloader

I was wondering (Live Chat could not answer) if I will be able to unlock my bootloader onthis device if I payoff the Next on it?  \

 

It already made me angry when I bought the Moto Z @ Lenovo and was told WiFi calling would not work because I did not buy it @ AT&T, so I bought a Z2 Force @ AT&T to find out they are never going to turn on WiFi calling on it anyway.  But hey - I already have $500 worth of mods I am not going to toss even though AT&T will refund my phone cost (and take the phone back basically).

 

Anyhow - I just want all of these bloated apps off my phone and need to load a ROM, so the only question I have is about the bootloader being unlockable after I pay it off..?

 

Sorry for the rant Smiley Happy

Nope.  They do not unlock bootloader's.

Re: Moto Z2 Force - Unlock Bootloader

Figured as much.  I guess I'll return it even though it is almost a year old and just buy one unlocked from Moto then..  Since WiFi calling will not work, at least I can get rid of the bloatware and unapproved updates (even when they are set to off)..

 

Hate carrier phones!

 

Thanks!

How are you getting att to give your money back.  If it has not been approved by a manager it's not going to happen.

It's noted in my account from the last time I called.  I was pretty angry and also having issues with our FTTH from them as well, so they agreed to take it back.

   You get trade in value only.   Or if you purchased with Next every year you can upgrade with trade in.   But no amount of notes (I guarantee there are none) will get ATT to take back a phone you bought more than 14 days ago.

Best Buy, most retailers , And all carriers have a 14 or 15 day return period with restock fee.  

Carriers have a 14 day policy on all purchases.
