Both AT&T and Verizon have repeatedly and vociferously stated that their policy of locking bootloaders isn't going away any time soon. And in both cases, public-spirited security researcher Dan Rosenberg has managed to fox them on at least some hardware. Like a mischievous trickster deity, the Loki tool has been pressed into service to work around the locked bootloaders of various Samsung and LG devices, and the latest update adds support for the flagship LG G2 on both carriers.

Earlier today we reported that Verizon is currently denying owners of the Nexus 7 2013 LTE model the ability to access new data lines on the company's network. We reached out to a Verizon representative for comment, and here's what we got back:

This is not yet a device that is Verizon 4G LTE certified. We’ll let folks know when its certified.

Since that's a little on the vague side we requested some clarification, and received the following additional response.

Update: Verizon has responded to our inquiry about the Nexus 7 LTE registration issues. A company representative said that the Nexus 7 LTE would be certified for the Verizon network at some point.

That isn't much to go on, but it's certainly promising - it implies that Verizon is at least aware of the problem and taking steps towards upgrading the company's infrastructure to compensate. Of course, it could take any amount of time for Verizon to certify a new, unlocked device for their network (and Verizon isn't exactly known for speedy response when it comes to devices and software).

Verizon hasn't explicitly announced an Android 4.2 update for the DROID DNA, but in a way, they have. The company has updated the support page for the nearly one-year-old handset with an in-depth look at what new goodies to expect. It's quite the ugly page, so we'll save you the effort of perusing it for yourself by providing the gist right here. After this update, DROID DNA owners will have an HTC Sense 5 experience that approaches that of the HTC One.

If you've already made the decision to give someone your money for the Galaxy Note 3, Verizon is more than happy to take it. You can now put down $299.99 to pre-order the Note 3 on a two-year contract, a whopping $699.99 for an unsubsidized phone, or reserve a no-money-down phone on Verizon's Edge upgrade plan.

Verizon will also be selling the Galaxy Gear smartwatch directly. You can reserve one along with your Galaxy Note 3 for $599.98 (the same price as a $300 Gear and an on-contract Note 3).

It took many long months for the HTC One to make its way over to Verizon, but for people who are loyal or otherwise bound to the company, it was worth the wait. The handset is still one of the most powerful out there, and while beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, no Android device has yet to attract the near-universal praise for its look and feel that the HTC One has.

After 14 years together, Verizon and Vodafone are calling it quits. Verizon will buy out Vodafone's 45% stake in Verizon Wireless to gain full control of the company. The two wireless giants have agreed to a deal valued at $130 billion, which includes $58.9 billion in cash, $60.2 billion in Verizon stock, and $11 billion in additional cash from smaller deals. This confirms rumors that began surfacing late last week.

Verizon is perhaps the most intimidating fish in the sea of US cellphone carriers (okay - it's more of a pond). Now the Big Red is in talks to buy Vodafone's 45% stake in the company for $130 billion, and signs suggest that this deal could be completed within a week. If this goes through, it will mark the closure of a deal Verizon has wanted to secure for years.

If you aren't familiar with Vodafone, it's a British company with roughly four times the number of subscribers that Verizon has and the largest mobile network operator outside of China.

The date has been rumored for a while, but now it's official. Verizon has announced via its official Twitter account that the Moto X is hitting virtual shelves on August 29th. The retail launch will come a few weeks later.

This is the same Moto X you can buy right now in AT&T stores, but locked to Verizon's network.
